With over 20,000 collective followers on our team’s social media outlets, we’re in a unique position to assist with both creating awareness of a prospect’s skill set and recent on-floor performance. From crisp recruiting updates to updated in-season stats to a potential last-minute change in schedule that needs to be conveyed socially, this package allows the player to control the information available to the public about their game.

Will Avery on the 2016 Travel Season

“We are very proud of the growth and development of the kids within our program. We had a number of players who got better and make progress on their individual games. We competed very well at every tournament we played in. We took EYBL teams to the wire and won brackets at other tournaments.”

Will Avery on the Benefits of Playing at PSB Events

“Our relationship with Peach State Basketball is invaluable. The Georgia Sting have been coming to PSB events even before I was coaching with the organization. After this years’ senior class graduates, we will have helped 26 student-athletes earn scholarships to play college basketball. Peach State Basketball is a big reason why, because of the exposure that our teams get at those events. Plus I always have college coaches calling me throughout the year asking me about players, because a PSB staff member has mentioned or wrote about one of our girls.”

Brandon Clay on the Georgia Sting

“Since joining the family in 2013, I’ve witnessed the Sting become the premier club program in the Augusta area. From Gary McMahan to William Avery, the Sting always have first-class people in charge of their teams. Since taking the reigns over from McMahan in the summer of 2015, Avery has taken the program to even higher heights. Avery’s willingness to continue to ask questions, have his older kids attend Elite Basketball Academy camps and help his players make their way onto college campuses for visits is impressive. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with the Sting and look forward to continuing to build on the strong foundation that we’ve laid.”
