Season Information

Dear Returning, New and Potential Essence Parents/Guardians and Coaches:

2022 is the 25th Anniversary of Essence Girls Basketball. This is a momentous moment for our program. I hope you have enjoyed your high school/middle school seasons. As we approach the travel season, I would like to provide you with an overview of the expectations of the 2022 season. There have been a couple of exciting changes to the structure of the Essence program. These changes include a new fees structure (explained below), an efficient way to book your hotel rooms and make payments for hotels, tournaments, practice fees and events.

Additionally, we continue to build relationships throughout the entire State of Florida and Georgia, especially with the addition of the KA Knightmares completely under the Essence Umbrella.

There are plenty of rumors out there on the travel ball circuit. As a parent and player, when you have questions, please ask. We ask that you do not assume anything based on others' perceptions who may not have valid information, especially those not in the Essence Family. 

I anxiously await getting in the gym with the coaches and players and watching everyone compete this season. So, as we count down the days, here is some information to help you prepare for the upcoming season.
