After much prayer, Stephanie Hough founded Green Country Defenders basketball in September 2009. She wanted to provide homeschool students in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area with the opportunity to excel in the sport of basketball. With God providing for every need, Green Country formed a single Lady Defenders girl’s team that year. This team eventually went on to win the (4A) 16 & Under National Homeschool Championship. Green Country’s first graduate from that original team continued on to play college basketball on a full-ride scholarship. (see more under : Defenders Hall of Fame)
Since 2009, GCD has rapidly expanded as a program to now include teams for both boys and girls ages 10 thru 18. The praise for this growth and success is due to God alone.
With a desire to begin the next phase of her life, on April 2, 2018, Stephanie Hough sold the Green Country Defenders to Jonathan & Aimee Garringer. Jonathan & Aimee have a desire to see the Green Country Defenders continue and flourish. It is with great honor, humility, and direction by God that we move forward as an organization, continuing to carry the high standard for excellence in the sport of basketball that is the Green Country Defenders.
