Why Was G3 Created For You?
As resources, support and money for young women’s athletic programs have been making strides to catch up to that afforded to young men, the gap today is still wide. Every day the sports world is spending more time and resources on young male athletes than young female athletes, which simply provides them more opportunity.
Young female athletes have the same college and professional basketball ambition and opportunity as males.
The G3 mission is to test, train and showcase the nation’s elite female athletes over three intense and career-changing days - like no other development event in girls’ basketball.
Young women train just as intensely and display the same unwavering commitment to their basketball goals as young men. More importantly, their parents provide the same level of support for travel basketball costs, team costs and basketball training costs. The chief architect of Gurlz Got Game, Rich McGuinness, learned this all too well as a father and coach of two daughters on the AAU girls basketball circuit and wanted to change the game.
The architects behind G3 include the creators of prominent national high school sporting events such as the U.S. Army All-American Bowl (NBC) that annually showcases the nation’s top football preps and the McDonald’s All-American Game (ESPN) that annually features the nation’s top senior basketball boys and girls. They sold their interest to focus on showcase and development for the next generation of basketball stars from the middle school ranks.
