The Atlanta Aces Class of 2026 took their team to the Georgia International Convention Center and competed in the USBA 2020 National Championships in Atlanta, GA. In unprecedented times this team pulled together and competed with some of the nations top talent. In the 6th grade division 19 teams from areas such as Louisiana, North Carolina, Memphis, TN, and Florida came together to play in a facility that was packed full of highly competitive ballers. The Aces went 2-2 overall, then in bracket play took a four point loss to the North Carolina Shine Hoop Grinders. The Aces showed they have the skill and talent to compete with anyone. This group of boys, who are coached by Aces Director Kwame James, along with Assistant Coach Wesley Thomason never back down from a challenge. They play hard with high energy, enthusiasm, and 100% effort. This team is exciting to watch and will continue to be as these boys focus on development in every area of the game. Great job Aces, arrows up!
The Aces are back in the gym! ACES partnered with the City of Acworth Parks and Recreation of Georgia to kick off the Acworth Sports Camp Series with a 3-day Basketball camp. The city of Acworth and Aces counselors practiced and followed all COVID-19 safety guidelines to ensure the safety of the campers. The Aces Organization and the City of Acworth partnered for the first of 6 camps that were provided through the Acworth Sports Camp Series with a 3-day basketball camp on June 23rd through the 25th. The campers were introduced to the fundamentals of basketball, learning dribbling, shooting, and defensive skills. The campers ages ranged from 5-12 years old, while in groups they were assigned an Aces counselor that taught them the basics of basketball. This group of kids not only learned basketball but the Aces incorporated their values starting with having fun, how to respect the game, and how to respect your teammates! Aces director, Kwame James insured that each kid left the gym with an appreciation for the game. Coach Kwame taught them to work hard with great energy, enthusiasm, and effort!

Josh Powell attended Riverdale High School in Georgia to then move on to North Carolina State where he spent 2 years and was named ACC ALL-Rookie Team in 2002. Throughout Josh’s professional career he spanned the globe playing in countries such as Russia, Italy, Argentina, and China. Josh spent time on multiple NBA teams such as the Dallas Mavericks, Indiana Pacers, Atlanta Hawks, Los Angeles Clippers, Golden State Warriors, and the Houston Rockets but most notably Powell won two NBA championships with the Los Angeles Lakers playing along side the legendary Kobe Bryant in 2009 and 2010.
