Our mission is to provide our girls the opportunity to be recognized by coaches on the collegiate level in hopes of obtaining a scholarship. 

Since the development of Louisiana Elite Girls AAU team, we have never asked our players to pay any fees. Many of the girls that play on our team come from single parent homes and we understand that paying to play on a basketball team may not be feasible for them. Therefore, we try to avoid having their parents come out of pocket at all costs. Essentially, that means the coaches covers the cost of all expenses.

A few years ago, when the girls only played locally, that was possible because we were able to save money by attending local day tournaments. We quickly realized that attending those types of tournaments was limiting their exposure to only local colleges and universities. 

We understand that if we want to achieve our mission we will have to attend tournaments in bigger cities like Houston, Dallas, New Orleans, Lexington, and Atlanta. 

Last summer, we played in 4 National Tournaments. Of those tournaments, there were more than 200 teams in their age division. 

Louisiana Elite placed 1st in each tournament!!!

These girls worked tirelessly day in and day out to achieve this feat. We want to keep the momentum going and attend even more tournaments to give them the opportunity to be seen by more coaches.

Any amount donated to help us achieve our goal is greatly appreciated.
