Youth Basketball

Basketball is one of our most popular programs because the youth in our community already love the sport and desire to play and improve their game. At JJK, they can play in a clean, safe, state-of-the art facility with other kids who are working toward the same goals. We teach the fundamentals of basketball, the value of teamwork, and many attitudes and skills that apply to life.

We form teams by age group, and have girls basketball, boys basketball, and coed teams. Usually the younger kids are on coed teams, and older kids are separated into girls and boys teams. The JJK Junior Flyers play inner squad, and youth from other community centers in Cahokia, Collinsville, Fairview Heights, and other St. Louis surrounding communities. Our coaches are all former players or former JJK basketball program participants.

Our Winning in Life Program is part of every practice, every game, everything we do.
