West San Jose National Junior Basketball is a non-profit organization having separate boys and girls teams serving grades three through eight. We are a winter league and operate three different programs under the guidelines and bylaws of the Silicon Valley Section of NJB. The NJB program was founded by Dennis Murphy in 1985 and is based in Southern California.
All NJB games are played on a regulation floor with scoreboard and wear a full uniform. Referees are certified and many ref at the high school level. West San Jose NJB is part of National Junior Basketball which has more than 25,000 basketball players across six states nationwide. National Tournaments for All-Net and for Division All-Stars are held at the end of each season in Los Angeles.
NJB Headquarters website is: www.njbl.org
West San Jose NJB has players from West San Jose, Campbell, Santa Clara, and Cupertino. We are part of the Silicon Valley Section, which has thirteen chapters. Refer to our Boundary Map page for exact details on the area and zip codes we cover.
NJB is a competitive program, with emphasis placed on good sportsmanship, scholastic achievement, and skills development. We truly believe that everyone wins playing in NJB. All parents and players interested in a high quality basketball program should strongly consider National Junior Basketball. All chapters fill up very fast.
We offer multiple programs and you can visit out Programs page for more information on each.
The popularity of NJB and the West San Jose Chapter continues to rise each year! We need more parents to help in keeping this league going strong into the future. The more parents we can have involved, the better for our kids. Also, thanks to the many volunteers who do not have kids in the program. Without them, there would not be a West San Jose NJB program at this point in time. Congratulations to all the coaches and players for a job well done last season! We look forward to another spectacular season – Hope to see all of you in this next season.
