The Jr. Eagles Basketball program is built on the philosophy that the game of basketball when played by kids is just that….A Game.
Founded in 2011 under the Bombers franchise, the Jr. Eagles Basketball program has evolved into one of the St. Louis metropolitan area’s largest youth basketball programs. The Jr. Eagles Basketball program will feature boys teams at grade levels 2 thru 8 and girls teams at the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade levels.
The Jr. Eagles Basketball program is more than just a bunch of basketball teams. The program represents a philosophy of how to introduce kids to youth sports in a way that allows them an opportunity to enjoy their time learning the game and working with their teammates. It’s important to give our kids the chance to fall in love with the game. Once a sincere passion has been fostered, then, and only then can we begin to introduce a progression of skills and fundamentals to assist them in turning talent into true skill.
Jr. Eagles Basketball believes in teaching fundamental basketball techniques that when taught correctly can build a solid foundation for every skill level to build upon. We focus on teamwork, pride and respect for each other, officials, competitors and fans.
We have multiple teams under the Jr. Eagles Basketball program and each team chooses the skill level they compete in. We represent recreation level to competitive league teams with all teams maintaining an emphasis on long term athlete development.
