Our mission is to provide youth athletes with opportunities to showcase their athletic skills and character, as well as improve them, through the formation of teams which receive correct instruction from positive and qualified role models.

How has the program grown?

Since our inception in 2017, our program has become more respected on a local, regional, and even national level. In 2019, our 12 teams won a combined 16 tournament championships.

How has PBR been helpful?

PBR has been a tremendous partner to our program in providing opportunities for assessments through our annual Scout Day, and profile pages for outreach to college coaches.

Plans ahead

Our teams will attend a handful of premier showcase events this summer, including the PBR 17u National Championship in Emerson Ga. Each of our teams will play an intense 35-40 game schedule with a mix of national, regional, and local showcase events.
