If you are looking for a girls basketball program in Austin, Texas that puts your daughter's skill development FIRST then the AGB Stars "Skills and Scrimmage" program and our AAU basketball team may be for you. Read on to find out what makes us different.

Our Methods

Why join the AGB Stars?

Austin Girls Basketball is a girls only basketball team that primarily focuses on our players skill development not winning tournaments. We teach all aspects of the game from ball handling, passing, shooting, rebounding, man to man defense, etc. We teach situational game recognition, player and team responsibilities and much more.

Our Skills Academy is what sets us apart from all of the other programs you have to choose from. We focus on the small details and aspects of the game that help your daughters develop a strong foundation of fundamental basketball skills. We spend the time to work on footwork, shooting form, change of direction dribbling, ball fakes and floor spacing. We will introduce them to and teach them how to play at a high level of intensity.

Our practices have two parts. We like to call it "Skills and Scrimmage". Every 2 hour practice will feature high intensity in our skills development and instruction. We follow "Skills" with our "Scrimmage" or realistic game play with coaches teaching in real-time. We focus on getting our players to use the skill sets we work on during the earlier practice session to reinforce the learning process.

Our program is for all skill levels from first year player development to multi-year player advancement. If you are tired of the same old aau programs that stress winning meaningless tournaments and short cut your daughter's development then come play with us.

What We Do

Skills & Scrimmage

This is the basis of our teaching. We workout for 2 hours focusing on intense and repetitive skills training drills. The majority of the skill building exercises are timed to keep the girls going at a high level of speed and intensity. We pack more learning into 2 hours than most teams get in a week.

Spring & Summer Camps

We offer 4 day camps designed to get your daughter ready to compete in Spring, Summer & School basketball. Our basketball camps are totally fundamentals based training. Your daughter will learn the correct way to dribble, pass, shoot, pivot, blockout, rebound, and defend.

Girls AAU Basketball Teams

We play Spring and Summer basketball tournaments to allow our players to sharpen the individual game skills developed in practice, play with a higher level of intensity, play as a team and to learn how to manage specific game situations.

2015 Fall Girls Basketball

Fall Basketball Schedule

Our Fall Sessions for AGB Stars Basketball will be starting up Sunday, October 18th at Walsh Middle School from 4 pm to 6pm.

The Fall Sessions will be for girls in the grades 5th - 8th. Each session will be 4 Sundays for 2 hours each.

The Fall Sessions will be held on Sundays from 4pm - 6pm, from October 18th until the beginning of March. In March, we will turn our attention to forming teams to compete in tournament play. The Spring sessions will run until the middle of July.

Our focus at AGB is on developing the skills that your daughter needs to play at a high level. That is why we our sessions or practices are for 2 hours. Practice is where champions are made. It is very unlikely that your daughter will improve her skills by practicing once a week and playing 4-6 tournaments. This will only reinforce bad habits and facilitate a lack of fundamental skill development.

Session 1 - Nov 8th - Nov 29 - Sundays 4-6pm

Your daughter may join a session in progress and pay only the pro-rated amount.

Each 4 week session cost is $195.00 .
