The mission of the 3 Point Goal Organization is to recognize outstanding high school girls’ basketball players who demonstrate leadership and inspire future contributions to girls’ basketball.
We are recognizing one senior girl's basketball player at each of the Berks County High Schools. These players are eligible to apply for the prestigious, Jean Frey Award. Jean Frey is recognized as one of Berks County’s winningest coaches. Jean remains actively involved in promoting and supporting Berks County Girls Basketball.
