 AN ELITE FRATERNITY & SORORITY  

By playing in the NBA, ABA, WNBA or with the Harlem Globetrotters, NBRPA members helped build the game of basketball and – through the distinction of an on-court professional career at the sport’s highest levels – remain ambassadors to the game for life. NBRPA members embody the game long after taking the court professionally and put their notoriety to positive use as spokespersons and conduits of good will in the basketball community.

NBA, ABA, WNBA or Globetrotters Alumni are eligible for membership in the NBRPA. Our Association is an exclusive fraternity and sorority that offers unique fellowship and a host of programs to help former players navigate life after basketball.
