Cedar Rapids Diplomats

 The Cedar Rapids Diplomats (14u) have been selected to play in the Jr. NBA World Championships, Central Region, ‪June 8th - 10th.‬  

About Jr. NBA World Championships

 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. 

Help Our Team

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.
