BallN Powher Prep Invite 2016

The city of Birmingham, Alabama, and G.W. Carver High School were this year’s hosts. They welcomed us with open arms, and put the South’s moniker “Southern Hospitality,” up front and center for all to experience and enjoy. The G.W.Carver  facilities and staff were nothing less than top-notch.

BallN Prep and Jam on it Events brought together some of the top High School girl teams from Alabama, Louisiana, Tennessee, Florida, and Georgia, to compete in the BallN Powher Prep Event.
