Mission Statement

Georgia Tarheel Sports is a non-profit athletic organization designed to provide young athletes (ages 8-19) with a forum to develop and display their athletic skills and talents. The league is structured around and emphasizes the importance of continuing education, teamwork and good sportsmanship. Another very valuable asset is the positive interaction that the organization continually has with local schools, neighborhoods, city management and the business community. The program also has the privilege of uniting culturally diverse groups with the common goal of competing, learning and socializing. This aids in accomplishing the program's ultimate goal which is to help instill in our youth the vital importance of hard work, fair play and racial equality. Dedication to continuing education future plans is exhibited and handled in various instructional classes and seminars for participants. With all this in mind, the we would like to recognize the Atlanta area for their loyal support as they continue to be the driving force behind the success of Georgia Tarheel Sports.

Georgia Tarheels Basketball would like to take the time to thank Team Pete's Bluerays for coming out and competing all the way from Miami, Florida this year. Pete and his teams have been participating in Georgia Tarheels events for 5+ years now and always bring their "A" game! The organization is run by Pete Soriano, and Pete is an awesome coach and mentor to the youth. 

This year his 7th grade boys and 9th grade boys will be going to the NTBA Nationals in Myrtle Beach, SC courtesy of GTHB. These two teams fought hard and won their divisions in our annual Hotlanta Invitational. We would like to also give a special shoutout to AJ Brown who hit 19 3 pointers in the tournament – impressive! 

Pictured below are the players, parents, chaperones and coaches that came all the way to Atlanta this year. Thank you all for your support!!
