Maryland Jewels


The Maryland Jewels, founded in 2017, is a professional women’s basketball team based in Largo, Maryland.  As a member of the Women’s American Basketball Association (WABA), the Jewels will compete in the Region I – Southeast Division for the upcoming season.  Our elite athletes bring WABA fans a highly energetic, thrilling, family fun experience every game.

Maryland Jewel’s partners with various community outreach organizations, such as Hoops & High Heels Incorporated and Beyond the Basics Basketball to build relationships and impact young girls in the DC-Metropolitan area through education, service, and athletics.  In Spring 2018, the Maryland Jewels won the Qualifier Championships of the Red Bull Reign 3v3 Basketball Tournament. Jewels will return to defend their title against teams across the country in the 2018 U.S. Final Women’s 3v3 Tournament in September 2018.

Our goal is to change the perception of women in sports by starting with the WABA professional development league, providing athletes with an opportunity to play at the next level by way of overseas or the WNBA.
