Comets announce selection to Girls Under Armour Association

The Comets Girls Basketball Club, one of the most successful club teams in the country over the last 32 years is proud to announce a partnership with Under Armour. As an Under Armour sponsored program, the Comets will be a Charter Member of the Under Armour Association (UAA).

The UAA and its #unleashchaos campaign will sponsor leagues at the 17 & under, 16 & under, and 15 & under age groups. The circuit will have an online presence unparalleled by other shoe companies including player profiles, results, standings, and individual player statistics. As Under Armour enters the world of girls’ basketball their impact will be felt countrywide with an unmatched commitment to our program, the league, and all of the athletes involved.

We are excited to announce that 3 of our teams will be on the inaugural UAA circuit in 2019; class 2020s, 2021s, and 2022s. Teams involved will play a 10-game regular season schedule with two UAA regular season tournaments leading up to the UAA finals in Atlanta, Ga at the end of July.

This is a one of a kind opportunity that the Comets program is excited to be involved with that will benefit ALL Comets teams at every age group.  From apparel packages to event signage and the implementation of a branded website, the UAA will be a spring and summer basketball experience that will exceed what is offered by other shoe brands.

Our partnership with Under Armour and our presence in the UAA league will add an even greater opportunity for our players to prove themselves on a national level. In the last 4 years alone the Comets have sent 34+ players to division 1 schools and another 35+ players to division 2/3 schools to continue their basketball careers.  We look forward to maximizing exposure and continuing to create unforgettable opportunities for our players.
