WELCOME TO GTA MAVERICKS

Here, we believe that basketball is more than just a sport. Instead, it is a powerful tool that pushes children to grow in life and enhances our community as a whole. Accordingly, we provide a variety of unique basketball programs year-round for all ages and skill levels to enjoy.

At GTA Mavericks, we see beyond the child. We see young individuals who aspire to improve themselves and will put in the work and effort to achieve their goals. What we do is provide our participants with the necessary tools, mentors, and experiences to assist them in becoming successful student-athletes and the best person they can be.

We seek to show kids the importance of self-confidence and perseverance, values which are indispensable for basketball and a great deal of other things in life.
