Transitioning to the MWA Elite | Febraury 1, 2017

The Michigan Lady Pride are now transitioning to the MWA Elite Basketball Club beginning February 1, 2017.

The club has provided an avenue for families who are new to AAU Basketball and this will remain the case with the MWA Elite-Local teams. Several of the families that have found the Lady Pride are looking for better coaching and better competition. We will still provide better coaching with non-parent, paid coaches and better competition by playing in one of the most competitive leagues around, the AAU Detroit Leagues.

The MWA Elite offers 3-types of teams: Local, State & National. The MWA Elite will give players the opportunity to showcase their skills on a higher level team, within the same club. For State & National team info, please go to www.mwaelite.com for more info.
