Q: Who is eligible to sign up for Jr. Laker Basketball?
A: All students in grades K-8 who reside in or attend school in Mountain Lakes or Boonton Township. If programs are close to capacity, residents will have priority over non-resident students.
Q. Why are there caps on the number of children that can enroll in the program?
A: Program capacity is dictated by the number of children that can safely fit into the gym where the program is schedule, as well as the availability of volunteers to coach and supervise each program. Once program registration reaches capacity, Jr. Laker Basketball will start a wait list and where allowed, do our best to bring those kids into the program, on a first come, first serve basis.
Q: What is the refund policy?
A: Refund requests must be received BEFORE the start of the first practice/clinic dates. To request a refund, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The decision to approve or deny a refund request rests solely with JLB Board.
