Indiana Swish summer basketball

Indiana Swish is a “start-up” travel basketball group being created to develop young boys and girls in both the game of basketball and life. Our goal is to create teams based out of Marion, but not limited to players just from Marion area. We seek players who want to develop skills and growth over primarily the spring, summer, and fall months with a team first concept.

Activities this summer include:

A 3-on-3 league starting in July to help kids get more court time. The league will last 4 weeks and be played during the weeknights. Each team will play a minimum of 8 games including a tournament the final week.

Indiana Swish Tournament Team. Tryouts will be Saturday June 9. The foocus is to develop basketball skills, life lessons and athleticism in players. Coaches will go through constant internal training and AAU “Double Goal” certification to make sure that all of our players get the best results from our program.

Teams will play in six tournaments and will have a minimum of four games per weekend in Marion. The first tournament starts on July 20 with the last tournament scheduled for Sept. 28-30. All divisions are based on 2018-19 grade.

For more information and to register for league, tournaments and tryouts visit www.indianaswish.com.
