More About JUEL

The JUEL of Ontario; Canada’s first and longest running Provincial Basketball League is entering its next stage of development “our second 5”. Over the past 5 seasons the league has made strides in improving the women’s game across Canada while graduating over 75% of our seniors. Graduates aren’t just finding roster spots at the next level, they’re stepping into important roster roles and contributing from day 1. Our emphasis will continue to be placed on player development – helping you reach your potential as a player so that you can play basketball at the level that you desire to play it. The Blues JUEL is a very competitive team in the league, but it’s your development as a player that will be the top priority.
