2024 Season for HS Girls

You Are Invited To Be Fierce


We will have one team for the HS divisions.  They will begin playing at 17U and Varsity Levels.  We won about 70% of our games last season and while that was the reward for our hard work, we believe the learning comes in the losing and are going to play a more competitive schedule this season.

Fierce Select Basketball

Fierce will have players 11th grade and under.  We have very big expectations for the growth, joy, and future of this team. They will start by playing 10th grade levels but they will move up dependent upon their progress as they win and come together.  Fierce will scrimmage internally  each other and older Fierce alumni, boys, and men as well.    Fierce is on a very accelerated growth path.  We can’t wait.

Season: March 1 thru June 12

Team Practice: 6:00 – 7:45 Wednesdays 

Team Skills Practice:  6:00 – 7:00PM Thursdays 

Coed Real Run (Optional) Tuesdays 6:30-8PM

  • Refereed scrimmages, in coed, same sex, full court, and FIBA Rules 3 on 3 (which helps conditioning and speed of decisionmaking while getting players more touches)
  • Different teams each week to reduce social pecking orders or roles stagnancy.  Players strongly encourage to try new skills without fear of coach correction.  No coaching by coaches or players allowed.
  • This is included in your fee.


Weekends March 15 thru June 12.

Any Questions: Text me at 512-921-4444 to set up phone call so we can answer any and all questions or concerns.  Please speak your mind freely, no questions are too dumb or selfish.

Girls Basketball Tournaments Overview

75% of these tournaments are what I would call highly competitive to win.   We will be travelling more this year.

The basketball tournament logistics are often disappointing.  The complete opposite of an Austin swim meet.

We often don’t get game times until Thursday or Friday for a weekend tournament.  There are indeed more real obstacles (like being at the mercy of school district facilities, Covid and logistics dropouts and scheduling etc) and there is the laissez-faire attitude of some people running the tournaments.

We have aimed to take on the more reliable tournament providers, but there are no guarantees.  Having two children of my own, owning a business, etc., my time is valuable too and we will do everything within our power to respect your time at a level not seen in Austin select basketball.

Austin Select Basketball Tournament Schedule

Fierce has a goal of 25-30 game schedule.   We will be playing those tournaments between March 15 and June 15.

We will be playing in Greater Austin, and San Antonio tournaments. We are also playing a tournament in Houston and Dallas.

We will also be trying to schedule well organized scrimmages.  Locations will likely be at Fitzhugh.

Our goal is to develop, become competitive, and have fun.   We will also be having a college basketball seminar and teach our players how to open direct lines of communication with college programs rather than hoping to be noticed at exposure tournaments which have been highly overrated in actual results for kids.

Tentative Tournament Schedule for Fierce 2024 ( We will likely play 8 tournaments)

  1. Tip Off Classic March 30th Austin Riseup Tournaments
  2. Excel Heart of Texas Tournament April 6-7 Austin 
  3. Riseup United We Stand,  Austin,  APRIL 13 – 14, 2024
  4. THE HEART OF TEXAS SHOWCASE April 19-21 2024 Frisco/Arlington Texas *****We need to be up there Friday morning for tournament games.  Which means checking into hotel Thursday eve.  This means missing a school day.  It is critical I know your stance on this ASAP.   Because it is a very expensive tournament, and the players said they want to be at 1-2 of these kinds of tournaments.  For those who want to play in college or are open to the idea, you need to be at this event and consider it a college visit type absence.  
  5. Spring Splash, April 27-28, Austin
  6. Prep Hoops Duel for The Dynasty May 3-5th Fort Worth, Texas
  7. 23RD MAGIC NOT ON MOTHER’S DAY SHOOTOUT, Austin, May 11, 2024
  8. All Eyez on She Tournament May 25-26th 2024, Austin
  9. TJ SUMMER SHOWCASE JUNE 08 – 09, 2024, Austin 

*We will vote on whether we want to do All Eyez or replace it on other date due to Memorial Day.

Recommended Basketball Showcases (Optional Price Not Included)

  1. SoCal All Academic Basketball Camp  DATES:March 16-17, 2024 Location TBD (Orange County California)
  2. GIRLS AAB SUPER BOWL July 15 – 16 Seal Beach California
  3. Thu – Fri June 29 – 30 Girls All-Academic Camp Babson College, Boston Area (This is not on their website but is rumored to be the date.  

College Prospect Camps (Not included in price)

Fierce Basketball and Chris Corbett are huge fans of direct marketing and sales.  Don’t hope to get noticed, reach out directly to the school and coach you would like to play for.   College prospect camps can become the next step after you and the coach have a chance to text and talk on the phone.  You can see the campus, often times the teammates, and also see the level of competitions they are recruiting.  All Fierce players will receive our list of college basketball camps for this summer and fall.  These camps are not included in the price of your fees.

Summer Extended Play

In May we will have a discussion if anyone wants to extend the season and play another NCAA certified event we can.   I recommend we do this and see what all the hype and glory are all about!

I personally think you should hear about other summer exposure offers.    Prospect camps, individual showcases and more.  There is zero pressure to extend the season.  We have a lot of experience helping girls reach high academic basketball programs directly and also positioning them in a way to learn how to sell their value to get the most available merit and need based money as student leaders and athletes.

Fierce Girls Select Basketball Practices

Practices are not optional.  If you miss practice, you likely don’t start and playing time is likely reduced that weekend.  And yes that includes “excused absences.”  Absences happen.  Illness, injury, family matters, etc.   And yes, sometimes the mental health day.  Or a parent day (imagine that for a minute.)  We do not want you at practice sick, so please also keep that in mind.   If you are sick, and then well by tourney, you may not start, but minutes will not likely be hurt once you see what we are doing.

Your player not starting is not a punishment.   It is simply about choices and consequences that they will be experiencing in life.   This is likely the standard at their high school and beyond programs and we want to prepare them for that commitment.

All practices are at Fitzhugh Baptist Church Gym


Basketball Mental Health Support

We are not psychologists, but we are acutely aware of many of the problems our young women face playing basketball today.   We cover some of these topics on a regular basis to help support them on their journey and also to make sure they don’t feel isolated.

For girls who need a professional we highly recommend Shayna Barksdale at https://austintherapyforgirls.com/

Girls Select Basketball Tryouts and Invites


If I have personally sent you this link via email or text, you have been seen, trained by me or scouted by me.  If you have found us online or were referred to us, we will set up an individual workout for you after a phone consultation and hearing your goals.


If you have received an invite from us… congratulations.  We are an exclusive boutique program.  We cut players every year and don’t have teams for everyone.

We like who you are, have watched you, and also done background research on you.

We want you as part of our FAMILY.

You have 24 hours to accept the commitment to the schedule and pay the invoice via registration button below (if you have a cash flow issue, call me.)   Once we determine who wishes to join, we will then move to the players next on the list.  And the prospective players trying out will be made aware of that in the interest of transparency.

Fierce has a waiting list of interested players now, and many are talented.   We will have a team this year, unlike some other clubs who will have tryouts and may not be able to form a team.  Your coaching staff is set.   Your gym is set.  Your practice schedule is set, and your tournament schedule is almost set. Curriculum and philosophy are set.   We have a highly talented group of coaches and trainers and parents to support your most valuable asset… YOU or your basketball player child.

If cash flow is a problem (this year has been tough!) Please call me to discuss.  512-921-4444
