Get Involved

Jumpball has continued to grow and thrive with the support of generous donors, devoted sponsors, and the time, effort, and enthusiasm of a committed group of individuals dedicated to our mission. We welcome you to learn more about our efforts and become a part of the Jumpball Basketball Programme.

Volunteer to coach

Our staff of Jamaican and American coaches is 100% volunteer. Do you have coaching or teaching experience? Do you have a desire to work with children or learn about sports development? If so, or if you are simply an enthusiastic individual looking to pitch in for the benefit of Jamaican youth, contact us to learn about opportunities to serve as a member of our coaching or support staff.

Apply for Notre Dame Student Service Project

Interested students at the University of Notre Dame are encouraged to apply for a volunteer position to assist in various capacities with the Jumpball Basketball Clinic: Kingston. Preference is given to applicants who have demonstrated leadership by working with the Notre Dame Bookstore Basketball Tournament – the world’s largest five-on-five basketball tournament and a major sponsor of the Jumpball Basketball Programme.

Decisions are made in April for the Jumpball Basketball Clinic: Kingston, held each summer in July.

  • Basketballs
