Jr. NBA LAU League

Jr. NBA Partners with LAU, Bringing the League to Lebanon.

The LAU Jr. NBA League is an exciting new partnership between the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the Lebanese American University (LAU), to create a competitive league for boys and girls under the age of 14.

The league features 30 schools – each simulating a team from the NBA – who will compete in an eight-game season, culminating in single-game elimination playoffs to determine the Jr. NBA Lebanon champions.

The league will mirror the NBA, complete with a Draft Event and Finals, leveraging the excitement of the NBA and LAU brands to inspire and engage more young people to participate in basketball through a fun, positive first experience.

The league will also promote common NBA and LAU values, while encouraging physical activity and healthy living.
