Junior League Basketball exists to: 1) Provide a fun environment for kids to play without unneeded pressure from coaches, parents, or league to develop a love for the game; 2) Establish separate Divisions for Girls and for Boys (4th and 5th grades); 3) Develop skilled and mature athletes through quality coaching; 4) Facilitate an environment for teaching the benefits of team, hard work, and fun through sports; and 5) Foster healthy and positive relationships between schools.
