Girls Juel League Basketball
The JUEL League of Ontario was established in 2010 as an independent provincial basketball league, providing opportunities for highly skilled female student-athletes throughout the entire province. SBA Blues provide JUEL program training with the top NCCP/NCAA/AAU coaches.
JUEL, which caters to grades 11 and 12, is an inclusive league that welcomes all players who possess exceptional talent and skills. The league’s primary objective is to attract the best players and provide them with a platform to showcase their abilities.
In 2014, JUEL Prep was created to offer players in grades 9 and 10 the opportunity to develop their skills and transition into the JUEL League. Since its inception, the JUEL League has provided strong coaching to players, enabling them to practice and compete against the best and gain exposure.
There are 18 Ontario University Athletics (OUA) and 19 Ontario College Athletic Association (OCAA) schools competing in women’s basketball, in Ontario. With most rosters containing 12 players, there are over 400 spots available annually. JUEL has established strong relationships with the OUA and OCAA, particularly with Ryerson, York, Guelph University, University of Windsor, Ottawa University, and Queen’s University.
The JUEL League provides a ladder for players looking to play at the next level. Regular practices with, and against, the best players in their region, along with games against the best players in the province, have proven to be a recipe for success. JUEL’s relationship with the NCAA, U Sports, and OCAA has provided our players with the best exposure and opportunities for basketball success.
JUEL League graduates are succeeding both on and off the court. Every year, players are evaluated, and winners are selected for the Athletica Elite Community Service and Molten All-Academic Awards. These awards are part of the annual banquet where we honour all the hard work done during the season.
Over the course of the past decade, the SBA Blues have established themselves as a formidable force within the JUEL League of Ontario. Their impressive track record includes securing three provincial championships in 2017, 2018, and 2019.
Of particular note is the 2018 team, who boasted an undefeated record of 23-0. Their exceptional performance earned them the distinction of being recognized as the top girls’ rep team in all of Canada. This was solidified by their victory over the St. Laurent Express, the leading prep school program in Montreal at the time.
It is worth noting that many of the talented young women who comprised the 2018 team have gone on to play basketball at the Division 1 level in the NCAA or U Sports.
This is a testament to the caliber of players that the SBA Blues consistently produce.
