Are you in the D.C. area and want to play some good ball this summer? Check out more info:
The league was born several years ago to speak to the growing voice of players wanting to compete locally during the summer months.
The league was taken over by one of its initial players, former Georgetown and current WNBA Sacramento Monarchs player Rebekkah Brunson.
The Capital City Basketball – Women’s Summer League (WSL) was designed to be the premiere summer showcase for Metropolitan Washington’s greatest collegiate women basketball players. WSL is the exclusive summer stage upon which both current collegiate standouts and seasoned professionals can hone the skills necessary for continued peak performance. The league was certified last year, and is currently going through the NCAA certification process for the summer 2005 period.
Each of the area colleges from Divisions I, II and III will be invited to participate along with collegians playing throughout the NCAA with local ties. Last year schools represented included Duke, Maryland, Georgetown University, George Washington, Howard University, Coppin State, Wake Forest, Bowie and Virginia to name a few.
