Gould Academy’s Girls’ Basketball Team provides players with an opportunity to work hard on and off of the court. Players consist of female student-athletes who come to Gould Academy from all around the world (from an average of 20 states and 20 countries) and work with our experienced coaching staff to better their skills, confidence, and ability to work together against other teams from both independent and public schools in Maine and New Hampshire.
Our student-athletes work with our coaching staff and college counseling office to ensure a quality college search process to make sure each student finds success at the next level.
