The Pistons Academy is now in it’s third year of developing fun, organized and competitive All-Girls Basketball Leagues. We will be offering two Lady Pistons programs this winter. The first is “Friday Night Lights” instructional league. Girls will get four weeks of practice and skill development and then four weeks of games. This is the perfect program for girls looking to learn basic game concepts and get game experience.
We also offer the Lady Pistons Middle School League. This League is more competitive and will play both Friday and Saturday evenings. Girls will be placed on teams through a draft and then play a seven game season (or more) pending how far teams go in the playoffs. Details for both are listed below. If interested in coaching a team, please contact Geo Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org
