Players In the Community
The Jr. NBA and Jr. WNBA, is a support organization for recreational youth basketball leagues in the United States, Canada and abroad that connects players, parents, coaches and officials to heighten awareness and participation in youth basketball. In its seventh season, the Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA has more than two million players (boys and girls, ages 5-14 years-old), coaches, parents and officials involved in a global program of 1,500 recreational youth basketball leagues which emphasize fundamental skill development, teamwork and sportsmanship. WNBA players and coaches make drop-in visits and participate in special events with Jr. WNBA leagues across the country.
Jr. WNBA Drop-ins
Another element of the Jr. WNBA program involves special drop-ins by Fever players at Boys & Girls Clubs of Indianapolis participating in the Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA program. During the visits they were part of a number of activities: conducting mini-camps, taking part in drills with the children, speaking to kids and answering questions about the keys to their success, and signing autographs.
