Junior NBA is the official international youth program of the NBA aimed at the development and popularization of basketball among schoolchildren, their parents and coaches, which operates in 50 countries around the world. This project allows children to learn basic skills and basic principles of playing basketball, and promotes common values for the NBF and the NBA – such as team spirit, leadership qualities and a healthy lifestyle, by maintaining a good atmosphere at the games and seminars held under its auspices.

The main feature of Jr. NBA – in this tournament, each children's team corresponds to a real NBA club and goes to the court in licensed equipment of the overseas league with the appropriate symbols. On the one hand, this raises the level of the tournament, on the other – the guys have an additional incentive to be interested in the strongest basketball league in the world, and therefore, in principle, basketball.
