About us

The South Louisiana Gators Organization was started in 2012 in Lafayette, LA with a 13U AAU boys basketball team.    Our organization was formed to foster positive character in student athletes in Lafayette, LA and the surrounding areas.  This development encompasses encouraging academic excellence in school and assuring that our student athletes maintain ethical and responsible behavior on and off the basketball court.  Our goal of achieving academic excellence from our student athletes has largely been achieved by offering free  tutorial assistance to our players.  Furthermore, the fostering of ethical and responsible behavior have been achieved by our participation in community service projects as well as having professionals from the local community speaking to our student athletes about the importance of education and sound values.  Recently, we have added a 11U basketball team to our organization.   Currently, we have a 11U and a 15U Boys AAU Boys Basketball Teams.  We look forward to continue to expand our AAU organization in Lafayette and surrounding areas.
