Jr. NBA: 3v3 League

The Kearney Family YMCA is proud to join and be a part of the Jr. NBA, the official  youth basketball participation program of the NBA! Let’s work together to improve  youth basketball for young players. The Jr. NBA shares in the philosophy that 3v3  play can serve as a motivational and educational approach to teaching the game of  basketball.

The Jr. NBA 3v3 leagues’ objective is to impact youth players’ long-term  development by delivering fun on court experiences that creates additional  opportunities for boys and girls to engage in play, foster skill development, and  cultivate friendships.

MORE THAN A GAME

It’s fun, entertaining and exciting, but also teaches sportsmanship, respect and  teamwork.
