Los Gatos NJB is a non-profit organization and board members are unpaid. Our fees go toward NJB operations like gymnasium rental costs, referees, scorekeepers and full game uniforms.
Scholarships are available! See below.
Due to growing demand and competition for gym time, we may have to limit the number of teams available in each division. Beginning this year, we will use the results of the draft to determine who did not make a team. This will only be done as a last resort if our registrations exceed our capacity. Anyone that is not drafted will be notified the day after the draft and refunded their registration fees (minus the National fee). These players will be placed on a wait list and encouraged to register for the Los Gatos Saratoga Recreation basketball league, which closes registration on Oct. 31.
If you have questions about whether NJB is the right experience for your son or daughter, we encourage you to contact an NJB board member, coach or parent whose child has participated in the past.
Please note: No refunds will be issued after September 30th. In all cases, the $16 national registration fee is non-refundable.

We continue to put a strong emphasis on volunteering. NJB relies heavily on volunteers for gym operations, clean-up, fund-raising, uniform distribution, coaching, and a host of other tasks.
Please pay careful attention to which volunteer activity you would like to select on the application form. The strength and success of our chapter is directly correlated to the active participation of our parents! We expect a large turnout of children again this year and it is our goal to accommodate each and every child who wants to play.
Sponsors are welcome to help us absorb the costs of gym time, which is our biggest expense.
Financial aid is available to cover up to the entire cost of registration in exchange for participation in certain volunteer positions. Please contact us if you would like more information.
In some special cases, NJB may issue waivers to allow outside residents to play in Los Gatos. These instances are rare, however, and may come with limiting conditions. Exceptions will require the immediate attention of the LG Board of Directors and sign off from a players local NJB Chapter and Director of the Silicon Valley NJB Section. For more information, contact the Chapter Director for Los Gatos NJB.
