2018-19 Junior Grizzlies Basketball Program


 

2018-19 City of Lakeland
Junior Grizzles Basketball Program


Our Recreational Basketball program, in partnership with Memphis Grizzlies Youth Basketball, will focus on teaching kids the fundamentals, teamwork, and understanding of the game. Don’t worry if your child has never played basketball, because this is where they’ll learn. With the enrollment in the Junior Grizzlies program, all participants will receive a free ticket to the Memphis Grizzlies vs. the Sacramento Kings game on Friday, January 25. Parents/Guardians will have an opportunity to purchase additional tickets for a discounted price. Each participant will be able to attend the Pre-game Shootaround, and some lucky participants will take part in the High-Five Tunnel, while some will get a chance to stand on the court next to the
Memphis Grizzlies for the singing of the National Anthem!
Your enrollment also includes a reversible uniform with shorts, a Grizzlies leather basketball, and to commemorate your player’s Junior Grizzlies experience, each player will receive a
Certificate of Achievement e-signed by the #4 overall draft pick Jaren Jackson Jr.
And, as another incentive to the program your registration fee will include a local Food Truck party at the end of the season!

 Don’t miss out on this great opportunity and experience! It is going to be a fun year!!
