Wisconsin Swing is very proud to have been around the Madison area for 10 years. In those 10 years, we have established life long friendships, and produced over 120 college athletes from our program.
Wisconsin Swing was started with our main goal being to improve the quality of basketball in Wisconsin. There is no doubt that we have accomplished this goal! The players and coaches in our program have represented the Swing and Wisconsin by being the one of the most respected programs in the NATION.
A HUGE Thank You goes out to all of the outstanding players, coaches, families, and friends who have been with Wisconsin Swing over the years. We are and always will be:
We look forward to year 10, and the next 10! We pride ourselves in loyalty! Our program has and always will focus on the fundamentals of the game, and playing basketball the "right way!"
In honor of our 10th year, all teams will wear the same uniform design worn by our 17u team from 2005, which featured 23 college athletes. 12 Divsion I, 3 Division II, 4 Division III, and 3 NJCAA players. This list also includes 1 NFL player, and several played basketball professionally overseas.
What a great start in 2005, and we have continued that tradition each and every year!
