2024 SGB Competitive Summer Program

(Rising 6th thru 10th)
 

After a successful spring program, SGB Competitive will continue at two locations from June 3rd through the end of July. Although our evaluations for summer have been completed, we are always looking for the right players to add to our program.

 

If you are interested in a special tryout, please reach out to Coach Bill Formella at bformella@swishatlanta.com, (770) 995-0198.

Summer Program Features:
 

  • Sixteen 90 Minute Training Sessions @ Each of Two Locations

  • Personal Skill Development

  • Decision Training

  • Eight + Internal Game Play Opportunities

  • Optional/Potential Outside Tournament Play


NO SUNDAY PLAY!

That's right. We will no longer be asking families to sacrifice their entire weekend for basketball. We know we won't be the program for everyone but we've received incredible feedback on this idea already this spring.

Rising 6th-10th: 7:20 to 8:50 PM

Program Starts: Monday, June 3rd
Program Ends: Wednesday, July 24th

 

Tuesday & Thursday: Gwinnett Hall Baptist Church, Lawrenceville, GA

Rising 6th-10th: 7:20 to 8:50 PM}

FRIDAY NIGHT GAME PLAY RETURNS

 

Each Friday, from June 7th through August 2nd (No Games on July 5th), we will divide into teams within each division and play. Games will be officiated and will rotate between our two summer locations - Forsyth & Gwinnett. They are very competitive. Several spring games were decided in the last ten seconds of the game and were played with passion and intensity.

TOURNAMENT PLAY

Our advanced training and internal game play will be available to select girls from rising 6th through 10th grade. New players must be evaluated. Should we have enough players ready and committed to a competitive team in a particular division, we will make outside tournament play available for a small fee.  By handling it this way, you will find that our fees our WAY under industry standards, creating an incredibly valuable player development opportunity.
 

Practice Locations:

 

Fowler Park Recreation Center

4110 Carolene Way

Cumming, GA 30040

Gwinnett Hall Baptist Church
1868 Azalea Drive

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.

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. 

 

We're looking forward to an exciting Summer of 2024.
