Swish Girls Basketball - What Do We Look For?
Tryouts for our 2024 spring teams are about to get underway and registration is open for our all girls training programs being held at three area locations:
Our FINAL tryout/evaluation for our spring teams will be held Thursday, February 22nd at Fowler Park Recreation Center in Cumming! More information and registration links are available on our Swish Travel Teams page. If you're simply looking for the best in all-girls basketball training, check out our Swish Girls Basketball page. Whether it's our all girls training programs or our competitive girls travel teams, Swish Atlanta is always looking for special young ladies. However, we don't define special the same way other organizations do. We don't look for the so-called elite athletes - a word greatly overused to the point of being almost meaningless in today's youth sports culture. We're not looking for superstars who feel they should carry the team or be catered to.
So what do we mean by special? We're looking for humble, hard working kids that appreciate when someone invests in their lives and are a joy to coach and play alongside. The kind of player we are looking for is summed up best by former Wisconsin head coach and recent Hall of Fame inductee, Bo Ryan - A man who was known for taking athletes others didn't see much in and turning them into NBA lottery picks.
"I recruit hungry kids, kids that love the game and want to get better and feel they have more questions than answers. It is very hard to find, but we've got 'em." - Bo Ryan
We've got them as well but are always looking for more. If that's what you want for your daughter, come check us out. However, if you are looking for a team where your daughter is the superstar and the team built around her, I'm going to respectfully ask you to keep looking. This is not the place! We want girls and families that are hungry for something different - a true community that supports and encourages each other and believes in the kind of true team basketball emulated by the 2014 San Antonio Spurs and the 1986 Boston Celtics.
