NGBA GBL Basketball Teams are highly competitive travel teams that fall under the umbrella ofthe NGBA recreational basketball league, but this is not recreational basketball.

These GBL travel basketball teams will be filled by open try-outs and not all players attending will be selected for their grade specific teams. Typically, all games will be played on Saturday and Sunday at Suwanee Sports Academy or at other GCPS High School Gyms around the County. The NGBA GBL teams will play other grade level teams from the participating GBL programs around the County. The cost of playing NGBA GBL will be $350.00 which includes a Uniform, Practice Gyms, Jamboree Games, Regular Season consisting of 14 games, and Playoff Games. There are no refunds once the player fees are collected by NGBA GBL.
You must currently attend school in the NGHS Cluster including: North Gwinnett Middle School, Level Creek Elementary, Riverside Elementary, Suwanee Elementary or Roberts Elementary to be eligible. If you attend a private school, and that private school does not offer GBL, then you are permitted to play for the grade appropriate NGBA GBL team provided you can prove you live within the school boundaries of NHGS cluster schools. Please register for try-outs prior to the try-out date by emailing or texting the appropriate grade level coach:
