The Jr. NBA Pathway has been developed to help players, parents, coaches, and organizations better understand the process of improvement. The Jr. NBA pathway is a developmentally-based progression that depends on players mastering new skills before advancing to the next level. The Jr. NBA Development Pathway is not based on a player’s age, but rather his or her proficiency at key skills. The Pathway begins with Rookie level and progresses through Starter, All-Star and finally the MVP level.
The Jr. NBA Pathway consists of four levels. At each level, there will be unique methods, messages, skills, and drills that incorporate and teach the ABCD’s of the Jr. NBA.
