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.

Zaniaya Williams - Combo Forward Is Back From ACL!!!
Zaniaya Williams, The Georgia Ribbon Warriors Athletic Combo Forward missed this past Middle School season rehabbing a torn ACL. This injury took place last summer when Zaniaya drove to the basket in a summer league game. Only a rising 8th grader at the time, she had the privilege of playing with the Collins Hill HS JV Summer League squad. A routine play turned into a year of frustration.
This year was long as she patiently awaited word from the Dr. that she was cleared to play once again. That day came just after the Middle School Season last month. Now she joins her Ribbon Warrior teammates with plenty of energy and determination to be the athlete she has always been. We are so glad to have "Z" back and working harder then ever. Great Summer ahead and the future is continuing to be bright!!!
