The National Junior Basketball League

NJB is a non-profit organization. In 1984, Dennis Murphy Jr., a former coach at Garden Grove High School, formed NJB. Coach Murphy had a vision of young boys and girls, from K - 12th grades, and their families being involved in organized youth basketball. The program is designed to develop basketball skills, good sportsmanship, and team competition. Player participation, team practices, and clinics emphasizing basic basketball fundamentals create a true learning experience for every participant. Chapter insurance, quality uniforms, excellent rules and regulations, team and individual pictures, awards, chapter clinics, and certified NJB referees lead to an excellent program. In addition, player camps, informative newsletters, and scholarships are provided for NJB players. Required clinics for all volunteer coaches lead to a true learning environment for all participants. More basketball groups are seeking affiliation with NJB. We welcome every city to join this quality organization. National Junior Basketball is building a tradition for our youth, and creating a positive experience for all. During the coming year, all parents are requested to volunteer their energy towards creating a strong and solid base in your community. Please give of your strength so that the players can receive the NJB ultimate experience.
