This is a legend in the game of basketball coming to Central Texas - The instruction and the instructor (Mahmoud)  will be operating at a high level - this will not be a beginner or intermediate situation... we are stating high schoolers, but if there are some middle  schoolers that can boogie please register. 

As far as spectators - because of WHO this man is; most of us grew up watching him torch our favorite collegiate or pro team(s) and NOW he will be in Austin, TX.... I get it, you want to be in the spot. Unfortunately due to where we are with COVID, it is not wise to pack the gym out with people.  We are inviting area high school coaches to come and be a part and we are working a live stream option as well - as of right now only registered kids and invited guests.
