  Meet Our Coaching Staff


The GA Pearls Girls Basketball Club is a Christ-centered club founded in 2002 and is dedicated to fundamentally developing the basketball skills of young girls and coordinating programs that will prepare them to excel at the collegiate level.

The GA Pearls was developed by LADYS, Inc. and started with 5 teams and has grown to service more than 150 athletes yearly.  With a 95% retention rate, the GA Pearls are the largest girls basketball club south of Atlanta, and the second largest in the State of Georgia. With teams ranging from 4th grade to juniors in HS, the GA Pearls have graduated more than 50 student-athletes who have received collegiate athletic scholarships to play at the next level.

As a christian club, the GA Pearls is similar to a church.  We will accept you as you are, however we expect you to exhibit Christ-like attitudes and behaviors while you are apart of our organization.  The GA Pearls will continually show you God's love and grace, praying that our actions will bring you to a closer relationship with Jesus.  The only one who is perfect is Jesus.  However, we will continually strive for excellence on and off the court.

The GA Pearls organization has and is transforming my daughter into a wonderful athlete. The hard work, dedication and training she has received has turned a little caterpillar into a soaring butterfly.

Through the GA Pearls system of basketball and "lady-like-ness", my daughter has developed into a confident young lady who understands what is expected of her to make it to the next level.
