About Us

UpdatedThursday July 15, 2021 byAdmin.

The Kirkwood Junior Basketball League is celebrating our  47th year anniversary. We serve all children who want to play basketball from ages Kindergarten to 8th grade boys and girls.  All levels of players are welcome and placed accordingly in appropriate divisions.
We work together with the Kirkwood Community and surrounding area schools, student athletes and all our coaches, officials and parents, who are friends and family, to ensure that we have a family friendly atmosphere. 
All our coaches agree to promote our KJBL mission to best serve our players and our community. Wether I have One division or 100, we do not care, we want quality of families and players who want to learn and enjoy the game. No MVP players or parents, we just want to let children be self motivated to play hard and learn properly. 
We appreciate the hard work and dedication it takes to make each child learn the fundamentals of basketball and enjoy the game for their lifetime. 
We are made up of dedicated and hard working volunteers, so thanks in advance for volunteering your time as we work collectively to make it the best experience your child can have by teaching fundamentals, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
We are here for you! So please communicate any issues so we can work through it together! 
It is our pleasure to keep basketball alive in St. Louis!

and our KJBL Team
