At Golden Valley , we stress the importance of excellence in the classroom as the Girls Basketball Program has worked very hard earning an overall team G.P.A. of 3.30 this past quarter. We are always looking for players who take pride in the classroom, are loyal to their coaches and teammates, and want to build a proud tradition of Golden Valley Lady Grizzly Basketball on and off the court.
Over the past summer and off season, the girls have dedicated themselves to conditioning and have worked very hard improving their overall strength, skills, and fundamentals of the game. This season, we will make history as we enter the Foothill League for the first time and we hope our fans and supporters enjoy watching us play. The coaches, players, parents, and the Golden Valley community are eager for the basketball season to begin. Come prepared to make some noise and cheer on the Lady Grizzlies to victory.
