Welcome to the Georgia Metros Website. In 2013, we are entering our 30th Year of providing mentoring and coaching to young female athletes, as we use basketball to teach them important Life Lessons and to help them earn College Basketball Scholarships. In the Georgia Metros Family, our Coaches are dedicated not only to the development of our young women as talented basketball players, but, more importantly, their growth into responsible, caring adults, who will earn their college degrees and seek to make the world a better place by giving back to their communities, the same way the Metros Family has supported and mentored them. We emphasize values such as teamwork, hard work, empathy, leadership, responsibility, humility, being coachable, and respect for all races, ethnicities, religions and backgrounds.
We currently have OVER 70 METROS PLAYERS who, as young women student/athletes, are now earning a free college education (mainly at NCAA Division I colleges) because they worked hard and earned a College Basketball Scholarship while playing with the Georgia Metros. This amounts to approximately a million dollars in educational benefits for our Metros Players in College this year alone (including their tuition, books, room and board)! We have helped over 400 young women earn college scholarships in our 28 year history. In 2008 we had TWO FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICKS in the WNBA Draft. In 2011 we had the NUMBER ONE OVERALL PICK in the WNBA Draft. We curently have over 20 Metros Players playing professionally overseas.
And, in our last three graduating classes, our Metros Players have already signed with these colleges:
Auburn University; University of North Carolina; Villanova; Winthrop; University of Virginia; Vanderbilt University; Virginia Tech University; University of South Florida; University of Georgia; Virginia Commonwealth University; Stanford University, University of Alabama; Hofstra University; Stetson University; University of Florida; University of Tennessee; Louisiana State University; University of South Carolina; among others.
