Basketball doesn't build character, it reveals it.

Above All Sports

Brian Jolivette and Annette Jolivette

Brian and Annette Jolivette, the visionary founders of Above All Sports, have been orchestrating exhilarating basketball tournaments in Houston since 2003. From humble beginnings of hosting one event with ten teams, our organization has flourished, now overseeing twelve events featuring over 1000 teams. Excitingly, we expanded our reach to include Lafayette, Shreveport, and Gonzales Louisiana.

In August 2020, we formed an equal partnership with Houston-based entrepreneur Ronnie Martin, who brings valuable expertise as a co-owner and operator alongside Brian and Annette.

Brian's Impact and Journey

Brian’s journey into Houston Summer Basketball, catalyzed by his neighbor Hal Pastner, resulted in the formation of highly competitive Houston Hoops boys and
girls teams.

Under his guidance and leadership, this team of 12 young men and 11 young ladies achieved Division I basketball success.

Brian recently retired from a remarkable 36-year career in Oil & Gas Software development, serving customers worldwide.

Above All Sports operates as a certified 501c3 non-profit organization, embodying the commitment of Brian, Annette, and Ronnie to youth basketball development.
