Wichita Park & Recreation has partnered with Jr. NBA to host the Jr. NBA Skills Challenge, with local winners qualifying for an all-expenses paid trip to the national finals in New York City. 

The Jr. NBA Skills Challenge provides boys and girls, ages 13 and younger, the opportunity to improve upon and showcase their fitness through five fundamental basketball skills: shooting, lay-ups, dribbling, passing, and defense. 

The program is free for all participants and organizations. Boys and girls compete separately in two different age groups: 11 under and 13 under.

The competition will be held March 4, beginning at 11 a.m. at the Carl Brewer Community Center, 1329 E. 16th St., Wichita.
