Zo'n 50 jaar geleden kreeg de stad San Pedro La Laguna, aan de voet van een vulkaan aan de zuidwestkust van Guatemala, haar eerste basketbalveld. Het maakt niet uit dat het veld toen uit aarde bestond. Vandaag de dag is op datzelfde terrein het gemeentelijk basketbalveld gevestigd. De sport werd door Amerikaanse missionarissen geïntroduceerd in Guatemala; en vanaf de jaren tachtig van de vorige eeuw werden de Amerikaanse NBA-wedstrijden op televisie uitgezonden en de populariteit van de sport groeide. Speciaal meisjes worden aangemoedigd om basketbal te spelen.
