WACG GIRLZ Basketball purpose is to create a memorable part of their life journey by providing a healthy and safe environment where confidence and consistency in their athletic abilities will inspire them to go to the next level. We will create an atmosphere where they can improve their basketball skills, while enjoying the camaraderie of their fellow teammates and coaches in the excitement of playing a competitive game of basketball. Thus allowing them to learn new skills and develop skills already acquired. We promote the mental and physical development of young girls through the game of basketball by focusing on teamwork, basketball IQ, skills, sportsmanship, and self-esteem.
WACG GIRLZ (W.A.C.G. or We All Can Go), serves as an elite league for young girls grades 6th, 7th, 9th, and 10th. We are comprised of 4 teams of girls who have come together from various parts of Nashville and surrounding counties to form a travel basketball club, with the help of our partner club NYBA Elite Program.
Our program was established to create increased opportunities for Nashville’s Youth to experience the expertise from professional and semi-professional basketball players. WACG GIRLZ is one of few youth sports organizations in Nashville that provides elite year round play for female youth with family-centered principles.
The significance of this basketball club, opposed to others, is the elected choice that these young women have made; they could be doing anything else, but have selected basketball as a means by which to network, build lasting relationships, and find parallels between their involvement in this program and future success both on the court and in life.
Our girls have just begun their second season together as a full girls’ program, and they are on a roll. Each player is committed to the hard work and dedication required to be successful on and off the court.
