Program Overview

The basketball program at GPSA is set up to promote improvement and achievement. We currently offer a Post Graduate opportunity for student-athletes looking to improve either academically, athletically, and/or socially. Graduated seniors looking to continue their playing careers and increase opportunities to earn a college scholarship are eligible to participate in the Post Graduate program as well as transfers looking to earn additional credits for eligibility.

If you have graduated high school and your goal was to play college basketball, but weren’t able to accomplish that goal because of academics or lack of recruiting, GPSA may be the opportunity you are looking for. If you have graduated high school and have received offers to play in college, but feel you could have earned offers from bigger schools, GPSA may be a good fit for you. If you were heavily recruited in high school and have thought about playing professionally after college, GPSA could also be a legitimate option for you.

Taking a Post Graduate year to prepare yourself for college is a wise decision. It could be the difference in making sure you are prepared academically to be successful in the classroom. Here you will learn the study, comprehension, time management, research and writing skills necessary to achieve success in college. Academically student-Athletes will enroll in NCAA approved courses and will be monitored closely. Remember, you want to make the most of your opportunities as your education will be a value to you long after your playing days are over. We take academics seriously and encouraged student-athletes to give their best effort in the classroom.

The basketball program offers you the opportunity to improve your skills. We will have 12-15 roster spots and we will play a competitive 25-30 game schedule against Prep, Post Graduate, College JV and 2 year schools. We will also play in tournaments in which college coaches and recruiters will be in attendance. Practice and training at GPSA will push you to your limits. The effort you give will be expected, not demanded. On most days there will be 3 basketball sessions: 1.Practice 2. Skill Development 3. Strength and Conditioning/Speed and Agility. Nutrition will also be a big part of your development. As you learn how to eat healthy, while training committed, your body will be able to achieve maximum performance.

Your living situation at GPSA is second to none and will allow you to focus on what you come here for as we are housed at the Westmar Lofts in Downtown Atlanta, GA. Your meal plan will be through Georgia Tech University and will allow you to dine in the university’s food courts and cafeterias.

We are building a brand. We are looking for committed student athletes that understand that this is an investment and your time here is not to be wasted but seized. With the right attitude and effort, this opportunity can provide you with the tools necessary to be successful in life.
