Early Life and Education
Jaden was born to Jamie Newman and Vivian Gonzalez, and she is of Jewish and Puerto Rican heritage. Jaden is a sister to Julian who is also a basketball star. Jaden’s father played basketball for Colonial High School in Orlando as a point guard. He is a basketball coach for the Downey Christian School. Additionally, Vivian Gonzalez was a point guard for Orlando’s University High School.
Growing up in a family of basketball players ignited her passion for the game at an early age. With professional guidance from their father, Jaden and Julian make 500 shots a day. This daily practice includes about 300 3-pointers. Their daily workout routine also includes hours of strength training.
Apart from home, Jaden also played basketball while studying at Downey Christian School. She was playing the varsity girls squad as a third grader. Her father suggested this position to her because the team needed a point guard. By 5th grade, Jaden’s average was 30.5 points and about 38.7 points the following year in the 2015-2016 games.
The University of Miami, an NCAA Division I (D-I), scouted this basketball player when she was nine years old. She has had exceptional points average from fifth to eighth grade. Her high school level average was 14.8 points with 7.5 assists. In 2018, she made 17 3-pointers and scooped 70 points.
Jaden and Julian surpassed the varsity prep level 1,000 career points early. They became the youngest boy and girl to do so. The docu-series, Hello Newmans, features their story as basketball stars. Jaden also captured the attention of The Queen Latifah Show. One of her famous moments as a teen star is a 3-point shooting contest against an NBA player, Stephen Curry. In this 2015 commercial for Foot Locker, she shot from beyond the arc all through the commercial.
She keeps her love life away from the limelight, and it is not clear whether she is dating. Other than basketball Jaden has also explored other interests, such as music with a debut single in 2019. The I Run It song featured her brother Julian. She is also a social media personality.
To add on, she helps her family run a sportswear brand called Prodigy.
In conclusion, Jaden Newman is about 5’5”. Her basketball skills stand out because she can shoot from a long-distance range. Her stamina compensates for her smaller physique as compared to other basketball players. According to her, it will be a dream come true if she gets to play for the Connecticut Huskies team. She also hopes to join the University of Connecticut. Considering how much she has already achieved at such a young age, these dreams are not far-fetched. The sky is the limit for this young star!
