GBL is Proud to Announce our top High School Club Program Sponsored by Adidas
as TEAM CANDACE PARKER
This further raises our level of commitment to the game and the standards, class and dedication always exhibited by Candace Parker. We sincerely value her willingness to reach out to a community of young ladies that are working hard to follow in her footsteps. We must put together a team prepared to honor their family, teammates..., and communities and play at their highest level. We must work harder than the next person both on and off the Court. We'll be representing the West Coast, Adidas and Candace Parker. We must go above and beyond what we think is great to create a winning mentality and a strong will to NEVER give up! We must thank GOD for our God-given talents and our ability to compete.
Now, LET'S GET IT!!!
GBL will host their tryouts on Sunday, February 26, 2017
at Windward High School
Starts 2pm to 4pm
Looking for a couple of top notch ball players to support our mission.
The following information is for parents completing a tryout form or seeking information about the GBL 2017 National High School travel teams sponsored by Adidas. Thanks so much for considering us during this very important time. Please take time to consider all things when seeking a team for your daughter. Freshman and sophomores should consider teams where they can get ample playing time and also be able to enjoy the experience of team bonding, good quality coaching, but even more importantly, training and development which gives them an opportunity to get much better and improve the quality of their game for the premier years ahead. Playing locally where you have more of an opportunity to see their development is important. If they are a top notch athlete (that could contribute on a top team with good playing time), then you should consider travel. Players that are Junior’s, MUST CONSIDER A NATIONAL VIEWING schedule. This is their final summer and it shouldn’t be wasted sitting on someone’s bench watching others (often younger players) receive their playing time. BE VERY CAREFUL!!!
GBL WILL HAVE THE FOLLOWING TEAMS IN 2017:
17U ELITE -- Our top team for Adidas will be our signature Candace Parker National team. We are seeking two more high profile players for this team. This team will participate in all top events and all players will be promoted at the highest level. The Adidas circuit is STRONG so we must provide the best and strongest athletes to travel on the National circuit especially under the Candace Parker name. They will attend 6 very important and highly competitive National events and many local tournaments as well. This team will consist of mostly juniors and a couple of high level sophomores. The goal is to obtain a College Scholarship!
17U GOLD – Our Gold team is our top level Adidas National team also and will consist of top sophomores/juniors and they’ll be a few younger players battling to make this team. Again, the Adidas circuit is STRONG so we must provide the best and strongest athletes to travel on the National circuit. They will attend 6 very important and highly competitive National events and many local tournaments as well. This team will consist of our strongest sophomores and juniors. The goal is to obtain a College Scholarship!
15U GOLD – Our 15u Gold team will be comprised of a group of top young players ranging from 8th-10th grade. This young group will travel on the Adidas circuit and will gain valuable experience regarding basketball business travel, commitment, dedication and team play. A true eye opener for young players who are really working towards seeking a College Scholarship. This opportunity to travel nationally and see the quality of players and seriousness of the game played outside of California changes their entire prospective and mindset about what it actually takes to obtain that valuable college scholarship.
15 RED -- Our 15u Red team will be for HS Freshman/Sophomores who are not strong enough yet to participate on the National circuit. This group will be obtaining valuable development and training to improve their skills and get them prepared to perform in front of College coaches locally. Guaranteed to be much improved heading back to their High School team. We are big on development (both mentally, physically and academically) and preparedness for the next level. Often kids are rushed into situations that they are not prepared for. We want to get it right!
Senior Team – For High School Seniors (2017) who have not obtained a satisfactory scholarship and would like to take advantage of a final opportunity to perform in front of many Colleges D1, D2, D3 and NAIA. Players will participate from March – June and we’ll work really hard to promote them and establish college contacts for them.
Please complete the tryout form on www.gblsports.org. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at (213) 804-3776 (Coach Sherri) with any questions you may have. Thanks again for your consideration of GBL Sports. We promise to make a difference.
