Expansion Process

Starting up an NJB Chapter is a very exciting and rewarding process. NJB will provide all the tools you will need to start up your chapter:

  • Flyers (distributed to your school district), posters, banners, design and social media assistance

  • NJB website which will be used to promote your chapter and accept registration

  • Assistance from the NJB HQ

  • Online Management Software for Schedules, E-mails and more

As a chapter developer, NJB will help you identify local high schools or recreation centers that are currently working with youth programs to act as your Chapter venue. Once your high school venue has been secured and flyers have been approved by the school district(s), NJB will sponsor free fundamental clinics, and player registration, with the goal of increasing the interest in your new Chapter.
