She Got Game Classic


At The St. James, we’re committed to women’s and girls’ empowerment through sports. That’s why we’ve teamed up with She Got Game - the top national girl’s high school basketball showcase.

Featuring hundreds of girls’ high school basketball teams and powerhouse programs, She Got Game gives student athletes the competition and recruiting opportunities that develop talent, build confidence, and change lives.

Showcases feature some of the best seasonal match-ups between top teams and star players. Games attract tens of thousands of spectators in markets across the country - Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, Jersey Shore, and Washington, DC.


Through the recent acquisition of Potomac Valley Thunder, the leading girls’ AAU club in the Greater Washington Region, The St. James further emphasizes our commitment to elite girls’ basketball teams and programming in the DC region.

The collaboration comes upon recent growth from Potomac Valley Thunder.  “For over 10 years, Potomac Valley Thunder has experienced success on the court, and we’re thrilled to welcome them to The St. James. The partnership will provide PVT with the infrastructure to continue its growth trajectory and build upon the strong development-focused foundation set for the athletes,” said Afiba Fairnot, Director of Basketball at The St. James.
