Flint’s Finest Basketball was established in 2008 to provide children a high quality program to kids just starting in basketball. The first team was a group of 10 kids with only 2 members of the team playing in actual games. Through hard work that team won the league championship at the Cage Field house.
The 2008 10 U team travel and played in events through out the state of Michigan, finishing 2nd in the state in YBOA. During the second year of play Flint’s Finest added its second team which consisted 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade athletes. Each child worked their hearts out and by the end of the season had sights set on being the best in their division for future seasons. The 11U team began playing against the elite teams of Ohio and Michigan. Hard work, unity and determination were key the building of this team. Those first teams set a standard for making strides in this organization, and we continue to build a foundation that offers the best competitive basketball program. Each year the teams have grown and matured, along with the coaches to become more successful. 2011 has by far show the best success for Flint’s Finest. The 3rd grade team has finished 2nd place at Common Bond Roundball Classic and Invitational respectively. 1st place finish at the F-A All star showdown. The 12 and under team has also fared well going to the Semi-Finals of CB invitational, Michigan Warriors tourney, and a Top 4 Finish at the USSSA nationals.
