Diplomat Basketball has created a winning culture in just under a year, we expect to continue to provide a positive environment both on and off the court and help get our athletes ready for the next level.

The Cedar Rapids Diplomats (14u) have been selected to play in the Jr. NBA World Championships, Central Region, June 8th - 10th.
Jr. NBA World Championships is the first of its kind for basketball, aiming to be as popular as the Little League World Series. NBA has recently stricken a deal with FOX Sports and 20 hours of game play will be televised nationally. The NBA has also tapped into its megastars Dwayne Wade and Candace Parker to be the program's ambassadors. If the Cedar Rapids Diplomats win in June, they will travel to Orlando in August to tip off against the top 16 teams from around the world.
We have a goal to raise $3,500 to help; with traveling cost for the families of the players. We have set up a Go Fund Me. Any shares and donations are appreciated.
