Welcome to the Junior Tritons.
St. Petersburg’s largest recreational youth basketball league.
Since 1987, our organization has been dedicated to providing the opportunity for boys and girls from the ages of 6 to 16 to learn the game, develop their skills and compete with other children of similar skill level.
More than 30 years later, we’re still committed to introducing as many kids as possible into the incredible game of basketball.

THE LEGACY OF OUR LEAGUE
In 1987, a small group of basketball parents founded the North St. Pete Youth Basketball league. A few years later with a little help from a certain NBA team, we became known as the Junior Magic.
Then, in 2011 we adopted the mascot of a college basketball team dedicated to improving the lives of their student-athletes and the entire St. Petersburg community – the Eckerd College Tritons.
