In its 17th year, Essence Girls Basketball (EGB) Program has produced a platform for over 100 young ladies to receive athletic scholarships for basketball helping pay for their education. It has always been our goal to teach young women to use basketball as a vehicle for higher education.

 

Essence has been apart of Nike Youth Elite Basketball for 7 years, 1 of only 8 Gold Star Nike programs in the country and the only Gold Star Nike program in the State of Florida. Recently, Nike has expanded to 32 teams to create the Nike EYBL for girls, same as the boys, showcasing some of the best female basketball players on 1 platform.

For 2014, we expect this season to be another exciting basketball experience with the final accomplishment for our young ladies once again receiving scholarships offers from all over the United States.
