This March the Washington Wizards and Zero Gravity Basketball will host the second annual Jr. Wizards Hoop Fest; an official local qualifying event for the Jr. NBA Global Championship.
This multi day grassroots basketball tournament is for boys and girls teams ages 8 to 14. The champions in the 14u age brackets, for both boys and girls teams, earned automatic qualification into Mid Atlantic Regional of the Jr. NBA Global Championship.
The Jr. NBA Global Championship is a first-of-its kind global youth basketball tournament for the top boys and girls teams ages 14 and under from around the world. In showcasing the world’s top young talent, the Jr. NBA Global Championship is centered on four core values – teamwork, respect, determination and community – that will set a new standard in youth basketball development. In collaboration with USA Basketball and FIBA, the competition promotes standards of safe play as well as the proper training and licensing of coaches to enhance the experience for everyone involved. All coaches participating will be required to be trained and licensed by USA Basketball.
The girls 14u winner, the Maryland Belles, would go on to win the Mid Atlantic Regional and advance to the semifinals of the JNGC in Orlando this past August.
