Cal Swish GBL was formed in March 2021 through a partnership between Cal Swish and the GBL Lady Rebels basketball programs. This partnership brought together two of the most respected coaches in Girls Basketball in Russ Davis and Sherri Pegues, each of whom have dedicated more than two decades to building the game of Girls Basketball at the highest levels. At each level of the program, our coaching staff’s focus on skills development and physical conditioning ensures that players get the most out of their natural abilities. As a result, Cal Swish GBL has produced 300+ Collegiate Athletes, 10 McDonald’s All-Americans and 20+ WNBA and Professional players. More importantly, we work to provide a bright future for every player in our program by teaching them leadership, resiliency, and a positive self-image.
