US Lady Ballers
Organized by: James Williams
The UB Lady Ballers is a girls basketball team comprised of inner city, high school kids in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The team was put together by head coach James Williams, Jr. The team has been playing together for one year and has had very good success. For years James had been approached by many parents and coaches asking him to put a team together for their kids. James finally decided to do so and was able to field a team of very talented young ladies however, many of the parents could not afford to pay for the uniforms, tournaments and travel and because of that their kids had to be pulled from the team. In attempt to alleviate the financial burden of the parents, James decided not to take a salary and coached the team without pay.
We would like to keep this team together but, realize it can't be done without the proper resources. This group of young ladies deserve to be able to play the game they love and also to showcase their talents to college coaches throughout the country. Other programs charge up to $1200.00 to participate for each player and for that their players are given exposure. We would like to have our young ladies experience that same opportunity. Please consider helping the team. No contribution is too small and you will be giving these young ladies a chance of a lifetime. Your contribution will go towards getting uniforms, AAU membership, gym space for practices, the cost of tournaments, travel to out of state tournaments and helping to pay for the coach.
