The J is excited to provide a new registration system. If this is your first time using our new system, please visit our help page for more information about setting up your new online account.

Register Online

To participate in a J basketball program, your child must have a signed waiver. If you register online, the online waiver was included. However, if you register by phone, by mail, or in person, we will need this online waiver signed & completed prior to the first day of the program.  Please find the waiver above.
