The Swans’ team owners / visionaries are Ms. Allegra Schell, 2009 New England Basketball Hall of Famer and Coach Travis Wathen, St. Louis, Missouri area native and a former standout (2-sport athlete) at Savanah State University.
Having seen how the St. Louis Surge has done in the league and the timing for women's basketball in Florida, Coach Travis decided to create the Swans and start getting the ball rolling in a hurry by signing Alisha Collins to the Central Florida Swans. Collins played at Southeastern University (2012-2013) and is the daughter of Sherod Keeton (Barry University) and former NFL Pro, Tony Collins.
We’re excited and looking forward to bringing women’s professional basketball to back Central Florida and giving our ladies the opportunity to play in the WBCBL.
