In the current youth sports landscape, the disconnect between the segment of kids playing for enjoyment and those seeking to showcase their talents with aspirations of recruitment has devolved the quality of the game. Nevertheless, families continue to invest thousands of dollars each year for their children to participate in organized sports regardless of the efficiency.

Our solution is GameFinder 365 (GF365), an online platform that enables teams to organize scrimmages or games against similarly skilled teams within a specific geographic area. By substituting some of their team's tournaments for scrimmages, coaches will have the power to effectively train their teams and significantly reduce prohibitive travel and admissions expenses. GF365 provides a space where an increase in skill, ability and teamwork is the goal and we can rekindle the joy of playing competitive basketball.
