"Our success is not measured by how many championships we win.  Our success is measured by how many players we develop and how many players compete at the collegiate level on scholarships. That is our ultimate goal?" 

Darlene Beale Norris, Club President

About Us


The GA Pearls Girls Basketball Club is a Christ-centered club founded in 2002 and is dedicated to fundamentally developing the basketball skills of young girls and coordinating programs that will prepare them to excel at the collegiate level.

The GA Pearls was developed by LADYS, Inc. and started with 5 teams and has grown to service more than 150 athletes yearly.  With a 95% retention rate, the GA Pearls are the largest girls basketball club south of Atlanta, and whose athlete are rated in the top of the state and nationwide. With teams ranging from 4th grade to juniors in HS, the GA Pearls have graduated more than 60 student-athletes who have received collegiate athletic scholarships to play at the next level.

As a christian club, the GA Pearls is similar to a church.  We will accept you as you are, however we expect you to exhibit Christ-like attitudes and behaviors while you are apart of our organization.  The GA Pearls will continually show you God's love and grace, praying that our actions will bring you to a closer relationship with Jesus.  The only one who is perfect is Jesus.  However, we will continually strive for excellence on and off the court.
