The summer season will undergo a dramatic change in 2015, when the All Star Girls Report debuts the ASGR Summer League. The ASGR Summer League will provide the answer to questions about which travel teas are the best, or how the top two post players or point guards would match up. The League will feature 32-teams in each age group, for 17U, 16U and 15U. The best of the best will compete throughout the summer, with the League crowning its champions at the Summer Basketball Playoff in Charlotte at the end of July.
The concept immediately received a positive reaction from the summer circuit members.
“We are very excited because we think this is a great opportunity for our program, our kids and our coaches,” said Coach Pat Gajardo of Team Breakdown from Florida. “The competition is going to be outstanding, and it will be a great platform for our program and our kids. This event is going to be second to none.”
Each team in the ASGR Summer League will play three regular season games. These games will be scheduled on the days leading up to the traditional major ASGR events, including the tournaments in Raleigh, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., and Las Vegas. The Summer League games will be separate from these main tournaments. Each League team will play in the Summer Basketball Playoff, with the regular season contests used for seeding purposes.
The All Star Girls Report was launched by White in 1995, and it has been providing the nation’s most accurate player ratings for the past 20 years. White’s Top Ten All American Camp has produced 175 McDonald’s All-Americans since 2001, and he spent 15 years serving as a grassroots consultant for major brands such as adidas, Reebok and FILA. White, who currently serves on the McDonald’s All-American Selection Committee, successfully launched the Michael T. White Signature Shoe and Clothing Line in 2008.
The fact that the event is being run by the experienced ASGR staff has been a major selling point with the travel programs.
“Mike has been involved in grass roots basketball for over 20 years, and during that time he has developed an expertise and he has surrounded himself with quality people,” Gajardo said. “They know what it takes to make major events like this successful.”
