Hanging out with the Big Boys - Atlanta Select 8th Grade Scholars

Atlanta Select's 5th grader, 5'6" Josiah Lawson, hanging out with
NBA retired Super Star 7'2" Dikembe Mutombo.

We appreciate the time Mr. Mutombo spent with the team.

The Mighty Atlanta Select 8th Grade Scholars with Head Coach Lawson is playing in the Greater Travelers Rest Fall league every Friday and Saturday. 
They won the league championship last AAU season and decided to play in the Fall league.

This Fall they have beaten the Atlanta Celtics, The Georgia Rising Stars and all other top Georgia teams they played.

On Saturday, October 22, the team had the opportunity to hang out with retired  
NBA Super Star Dikembe Mutombo.

One of the highlights of today's game is that Select player Khessli Ingram (KJ) blocked Dikembe's 6'6" son shot and grabbed the ball and floated down the court and slammed the ball with the authority of a block. 
Both players were good sports and laugh together afterward.

The team has a history hanging out with NBA stars.
Yes, with NBA Star Steve Smith.

A shout out to Head Coach Lawson who has lead this team for the last 4 years. 
 The name of the team's changed from Atlanta Select Red to Atlanta Select SCHOLARS 
to showcase that members of his team not only excel on the hardwood but also in the classroom. He can be justifiably proud of his team's accomplishments.
We invite you to check out this team this AAU season and 
see who they will be hanging out with.

Atlanta Select NEWS Friday, October 21, 2016

Sunday, October 23, 2016, Atlanta Select will be 11 years old. A milestone
Very few youth organizations last more than two or three years. 
To the best of my knowledge, the Atlanta Celtics, Team Georgia and Georgia Stars are the only other Metro Atlanta major organizations that are older then Atlanta Select, 
and by the way we grew out of the Atlanta Celtics. 
Thus, we can tacitly say we have over 25 years of history and experience.

Atlanta Select Skills Development Camp for 2016 is still going strong.

If you have questions about the training please contact one of the three contact coaches above.

We would like to thank Coaches Bridgewater and Freeman that assisted in the training last Sunday.

Below are several images of the training last Sunday.

Shout out to Coach Milton Woods who is always filling to fill in as need be.

And Coach Michael Harris who is always there.
