Jr. NBA League is now officially launched in Baku

We are very happy to announce that the Jr. NBA League is now officially launched in Baku allowing Azerbaijani teenagers to play basketball in a league organized and supported by the world’s top basketball league. This Jr. NBA membership will encourage and support youth basketball participation and improve the overall youth basketball experience in Azerbaijan. At the opening ceremony Ambassador Litzenberger said he was thrilled that the NBA has now launched this program in Azerbaijan, and was proud that the U.S. Embassy had recently organized a youth basketball program, including youth coach training in 2017 and a youth basketball league in 2018, that helped lead to this.
