SWISH TRAVEL TEAMS

2022 Girls Travel Teams - Tryout Updates

TRYOUT #2 - By Special Arrangement Only!


Thank you to all who came out to our first tryout. We were truly overwhelmed by the level of interest and are excited to get through this process and get started with the season. For those of you who tried out, we will be in touch within the next few days with the results/next steps.

 

Though we are confident in the talent that we have to choose from already, we still anticipate a need to look at additional players on a limited basis. However, we will not be hosting anymore large group tryouts. We have a number of training groups and other opportunities through which we can review a player's abilities. Please see the information below to make arrangements. For those who are not ready for this level of play but would be interested in our girls only training groups, please see our Swish Girls Basketball page.

Swish Atlanta has a unique approach to travel basketball. We are developers and not gatherers. Rather than search for the best athletes we can find every spring, we look for good, hard working kids that we want to invest in. We want to create a culture that is set apart from a lot of the ugliness associated with youth and travel sports.  Our practices look more like intense skill development sessions as the focus is on the players and not on the success of the organization. We measure our success based on our player's success with their school teams as well as our ability to assist athletes ready for the next level.


Who is this opportunity for?
 

  • Players that seriously want to get better and are willing to work hard.

  • Players that are humble and know they have more questions than answers.

  • Players that want to be coached and told the truth when it's given for their best interest.

  • Players that truly want to learn the game.

  • Families that want something different than the ugliness that typically surrounds youth and travel sports.

  • Parents who understand their role and are content to play that role and not one of the other three (coach, referee, player).


How do you know if you should pass this opportunity up?
 

  • Players who aren't serious about the game but just want something fun to do.

  • Players who do spring basketball just because their parents want them to stay busy and in shape.

  • Parents who want to coach from the stands and distract their daughters during games.

  • Parents who fail to understand how difficult it is to officiate and why we're losing officials at a rapid pace. (You'll never see me chew out referees!)

  • Parents who feel their daughter is a gift to the organization and should be the star of the team. We teach and play true team basketball - The Beautiful Game!


 

Our primary focus has been and will continue to be on skill development with an emphasis on offensive skills including ball and decision making skills. We don't spend our time teaching plays and presses to make the organization look strong. We teach them how to play the game.

 

We're looking forward to an exciting spring and summer in 2022.  It all starts the week of February 28th.
