Congratulations to all our players and coaches on a great season!

13 Jo players

13 Jo had an impressive year filled with 4 tournament championships! They placed in the top 100 of AES National Power Rankings (81), placed 7th overall in the Southern Region, and placed 5th in the gold division of 13 Club at AAU Nationals. This team has put forth tremendous effort this season and it was proven in their championship performances. Coach Jo said, “I am so proud of 13 Jo and all the hard work they put in this club season. I am a very strict coach and believe in pushing girls past their limits to get them to the next level. Some of the girls weren't too excited about how strict of a coach I was, however they pushed past the pain and sometimes exhaustion in order to battle during tournaments.” One moment that is unforgettable for this team was their 10-14 comeback during the Queen of the Mountain tournament. They had a similar match during AAU Nationals with the score also being 10-14, capturing another unforgettable moment. Coach Jo said she challenged the girls to place in the top 10 in the AAU tournament and they exceeded this challenge! Club Unite is very proud of the way this team represented the club in a winning way! 


Club Unite formed a 14U team to travel to AAU Nationals where they competed well at such a high level! Coach Brandon Row led this team to a successful weekend of play in Orlando where they proudly showcased our club. When asked about the team Coach Brandon said, "An incredible group that never quit. It is often challenging for a group of so many girls from different teams to bond and find chemistry. These girls defied the odds and built long lasting friendships." We are proud of these girls and their successful tournament showing. Congratulations to our players and coaches!


Club Unite sent the 14U team to the USA National tournament held in Minneapolis, Minn. Coach Melanie Morris led and prepared these girls for a high level of play in Minneapolis. These girls showed resilience throughout the week and had great success! We are proud of the way these girls represented Club Unite and competed hard! Congratulations to players and coaches!


Congrats to Club Unite’s 17U team on their great showing at the AAU tournament in Orlando, FL. This team is a combination of 5 of the club’s teams that were put together late in the season. They only had the chance to practice 6 times before the trip down to Orlando. Coach Dave Corbitt says that the girls came together better each day and several of the leaders stepped forward. He complimented the team's energy and their willingness to compete every day. “It was a great experience and a lot of fun!” says Coach Corbitt. We are proud of these Club Unite girls and the way they represented us at AAU!
