The summer of 2015 will have an extra spark thanks to the new All Star Girls Report Summer League. The league will feature 32 elite 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.
When the concept was announced, it immediately received a positive reaction from the summer circuit participants.
“I immediately thought is was a great idea,” said Coach Eric Worley of Philly Triple Threat. “This is just a great opportunity for programs like ours. Our kids are going to have a unique opportunity to be highlighted, and they are going to get great exposure.”
“We are very, very excited,” added Coach Xavier Walton from X-Citement in Illinois. “I think this will give our kids a great opportunity to compete in a league environment, and things are a little different, a little more competitive when you are playing in a league. Wins and losses will really matter, so it gives the kids something to work for all year long.”
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 fact that the event is being run by the experienced ASGR staff has been a major selling point with the travel programs.
“I tell folks all the time, we have been to several ASGR events and they are always first class,” Worley said. “They have been running events in a professional, organized way for years. I have no doubt in my mind that this is going to be well organized and competitive.”
“We have played in their events for a number of years, and you just know that you are going to be happy with everything,” Walton noted. “That’s a good feeling. Plus, they just seem to find ways to keep improving what they do.”
