Welcome to the Baltimore Lions Home Page.
The Baltimore Lions Women’s Basketball team will be competing for the first time in the Women’s Blue Chip Basketball League (WBCBL}, a semi-pro women’s basketball league. Baltimore Lions were established in July 2017. Our team consists of 15 women who all competed on high school basketball teams across the City of Baltimore, State of Maryland, and nationally with the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). These women have also competed on the college and professional level. Baltimore Lions are not just a team, but a FAMILY! Baltimore Lions stem from Back River Lady Lions youth org, which was founded in 1997. Women who played on previous teams for the Lady Lions decided to make a semi-pro team to help other women in the city that are still athletic and passionate about the game. Baltimore Lions have a dream, and it’s a big one! OUR mission is to provide live sports entertainment that features strong role models for Baltimore youth to look up to; to strengthen each member’s individual athletic ability, self- discipline and character; and to improve the community as a whole. The core purpose of our organization is to share our knowledge and experience that we gained through our participation in AAU, high school, college, and professional careers to encourage, support, and inspire OUR Baltimore City youth.
