The Warriors have two teams, both coached by Lenny Levine, which will be joining the Suns organization. The Warriors oldest team is comprised of several players who will be graduating in the class of 2019. The team has experienced great success over the past several years. In 2015 and 2016 alone, the Warriors won an incredible 16 out of 20 tournaments that they entered, including back-to-back Division 1 State Championships in Florida and back-to-back Division 1 Championships at Spring Fling at the ESPN Sports Complex in Orlando. In addition to the class of 2019 team, the Warriors will also be bringing over their team from the class of 2021.
According to Coach Levine, “The Miami Suns Basketball organization is one of the top girls basketball organizations in the country. Miguel Diaz and I have a deep mutual respect for each other, which has led to several conversations over the past couple of years. I believe that now is the perfect time to join forces in an effort to provide the best training, coaching, leadership and exposure for all of our student athletes on a national level.”
On behalf of the Miami Suns Basketball organization, Miguel Diaz, Co-Founder and Program Director, welcomed the Warriors to the ‘team’, and said “Coach Levine and I share a passion for basketball and for helping young athletes to achieve their goals. This decision will help us to expand our reach in southeast Florida and bring one of the area’s best coaches into the Suns organization.”
The Miami Suns Basketball organization will be holding open tryouts at Archbishop McCarthy High School on Sunday, February 26, 2017, beginning at noon for all girls in 7th to 11th grade. Tryouts are free of charge for any girls who are interested, but players should go online to www.MiamiSunsBasketball.org in order to register in advance.
The Miami Suns Basketball organization prides itself on the ability to provide a vehicle for young athletes to hone their athletic skills, while also supplying various outlets for them to grow as individuals off the court. Over a decade in girls basketball has afforded us the benefit of strong relationships with coaches and scouts across the country. To date, over 100 alumni have been signed to Division 1, 2, NAIA and JUCO scholarships, including 4 McDonald’s All American student athletes. In addition, we have had 4 players drafted to the WNBA, as well as 4 coaches move on to coach at the collegiate level.
