Welcome

The Georgia Ribbon Warriors Girls & Boys basketball teams have enjoyed a great deal of success over the years. They have played for Championships in many College Showcases, AAU, USSSA, PowerAde, Nike, Adidas, Eric Snow and other National Invitational Tournaments. Last Years teams were in a combined 13 Championship Games!

The Georgia Ribbon Warriors gets it's name from the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others. By bringing awareness to the fight against Breast Cancer, Colon Cancer & Sarcoidosis, The Georgia Ribbon Warriors make a difference on and off the court. Many of the Ribbon Warriors Parents have battled these diseases and or have family members, friends and colleagues that have come through the storm. Coach O himself had a major cancer scare followed by a diagnosis of the life threatening disease of Sarcoidosis. Like Cancer, Sarcoidosis can attack the body in many ways that cancer does. With early detection, aggressive treatment and medication, many people survive and can ultimately eradicate the illness.  He personally knows what it feels like to be in the fight for your life. Whether if it is Cancer or Sarcoidosis, The Georgia Ribbon Warriors shine by bringing awareness. We want to encourage everyone to get involved directly with the Cancer or Sarcoidosis foundations of your choice.

The game of basketball is just a tool to reach out and encourage others to get involved and not just stand on the sideline. Being a good group of young people with a positive outlook, they help athletes and non-athletes alike in the  journey of life. By cultivating the mind and body with the skills of basketball the Georgia Ribbon Warriors provide a unique atmosphere. We volunteer our time in a team and one on one capacity with the players and parents. We stay in constant contact by coaching, mentoring, consulting, advising and assisting our players throughout the entire basketball growth process.

For many parents and athletes alike, this process is simply overwhelming. This helps them build the necessary skills to help them achieve their career goals of playing basketball in college and beyond. Having gone through the player development process many times, it helps make the process less complicated. We help guide the parents and the student athlete on how to train, what to do, say and expect next as they continue their basketball journey.  As stated before, we are there as a resource throughout the entire upcoming recruiting process.
