The Atlanta Hawks Basketball Academy's Lady Ballers Program is a developmental program which aims to encourage and support youth basketball participation and improve the overall youth basketball experience for girls ages 6-18. In addition to learning fundamentals and team concepts, girls will learn life skills such as teamwork, leadership and self-confidence. Lady Ballers will develop a lifelong passion for the game through positive engagements with female role models and coaches in a safe learning environment. The Lady Ballers Program empowers, challenges and inspires girls to rise above the competition on and off the court.

On July 29th we hosted EmpowHer with Renee Montgomery, 2X WNBA Champ and Activist, and Tori Miller, College Park Skyhawks General Manager and first female General Manager in the NBA. Moderated by Hawks Reporter, Annie Finberg, the engaging discussion focused on how sport can help us gain skills like leadership and perserverance. Panelists answered questions from girls that ranged from topics such as healthy eating, mentorship and the importance of staying active.
