Selection of player for Gauntlet League in progress

We are in the process of finalizing the roster. If you just finished your high school schedule and want to join our competitive tournament team, please contact coach Ismael. The Silver Gauntlet is a highly competitive grassroots basketball circuit. Teams face high level national competition allowing players to prepare for the challenges and opportunities they will ultimately face in college. The top placing team in each age group at regional qualifiers can earn a spot to play against some of our Gauntlet Gold division teams at the adidas Gauntlet Finale in California.
