Following the basketball clinic, there will be refreshments and a panel of all female leaders who will share their stories of success with the girls. Overall, the girls will not only receive basketball mentorship, but also career and life mentorship from leaders from a variety of professional backgrounds.

Players register as individuals and are placed on teams through a draft. Teams are guaranteed a minimum of six games and three practices during the season. Games are Friday evenings and Saturdays. Practice days are Thursdays (but a few practices may be held on Fridays). All of our officials are certified and all coaches receive a background check before the season.
