JCC Premiere Basketball League

AgesGrades 3-8, Boys

Get your little hooper in on an 8-game season for a chance to win the gold. JPBL models the structure of Israel’s professional basketball league. By implementing a Code of Conduct, we ensure that each player displays sound fundamentals and distinguished character traits that can be used on and off the court.

We are excited to bring the JPBL to the JCC,

as we aim to serve the basketball community in the Tenafly & bordering locations who have been seeking an elevated experience close to home. The JPBL is a new in-house basketball league that will feature boys in grades 3rd-8th. Each team is selected by our coaches and divided evenly to ensure that the level of play remains competitive.

On Sunday, March 12th, 2023 the league will begin with an open run. This is when the coaches will be evaluating the talent level of each player and breaking them into teams. The league will run from Sunday March 12th – May 21st, 2023. Our league format will consist of 2 hour time slots.  The first hour will be clinic style practice focusing on basic fundamentals required for basketball (dribbling, passing, shooting, defense, conditioning) followed by a full in-house game. The time slots for each age group are as followed, 

9am-11am, Boys grades 3-5
11am-1pm, Boys grades 6-8

Every team will make the playoffs and winners will receive championship gold medals. All games will be played on Sundays at the JCC, for more information please contact Keri Thoren at kthoren@jccotp.org and jrinman@jccopt.org .

The cost for our in-house league is $300 (Members) $350 (Public) with a $50 uniform fee. Registration will close on Sunday, February 19th, 2023.
