VBA and Jr. VBA

Through the collaborative work of Omaha 360 community partners, the Village Basketball Alliance was formed in 2011, to provide a community league where young people, from different neighborhoods, could have a positive, healthy competition with the support of caring adult role models. An unanticipated outcome of the Village Basketball Alliance was the longevity in participation. Many of the league’s original participants are now in their 20s and have become increasingly positive role models to the youth in our community. League partners noticed the need to provide an additional opportunity to younger participants. In 2016, the Jr. Village Basketball Alliance hosted its first session with over 45 youth participants, ages 14-19.

Every session, the Village Basketball Alliance, strives to achieve the following goals for each youth and young adult participating in the league.

Skill Development
Each youth and young adult will develop and strengthen healthy social skills, including teamwork, communication, accepting decisions, following instructions and competitive sportsmanship.

Bonding Effects
Each youth and young adult will experience the support, care and security of positive adult relationships, in which they feel a strong bond. Youth and young adults will form new relationships with other league participants.

Protective Effects
Each youth and young adult will experience safety and security during league play.
