ABOUT THE CALIFORNIA STORM

The California Storm Basketball Club was founded in 1997 and since 1998 has been one of just 20 elite Nike-sponsored club basketball programs in the United States. The California Storm Basketball Club is a premier youth basketball program focusing on teaching young athletes, who possess a passion for the game and a strong desire to develop and improve their individual and fundamental basketball skills. California Storm is one of the largest and most recognizable in the nation.

 

 

TEAM TAURASI

In 2009, California Storm became the first girls' basketball club in history to be affiliated with a professional athlete. The Storm's most elite travel team became Team Taurasi, sponsored by 3-time Olympic Gold Medalist Diana Taurasi of the Phoenix Mercury.  Team Taurasi players wear signature Nike apparel specifically designed by Nike and approved by Diana.

 

 

ELITE YOUTH BASKETBALL LEAGUE (EYBL)

A player’s potential is often identified at one of the many sponsored NIKE Basketball events. The Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL), which will consist of four regular season events in Virginia, Illinois, Tennessee, and South Carolina will provide structure to the NIKE Travel Team circuit and allow teams to complete for an ultimate goal each summer. The EYBL finals will be played at the most coveted tournament of the summer, the NIKE NATIONALS in North Augusta, SC (July 27-30).

 

 

STORM NIKE SCHEDULE

For the past seven years, The California Storm has been one of just 24 teams in America to receive an automatic bid to the Nike Nationals in North Augusta, South Carolina.  Nike Nationals, the only summer girls' basketball event wholly owned and operated by Nike Elite Youth Basketball, it is the premier girls' travel team tournament in the country. For the past three years California Storm has been selected by Nike to participate in the Junior Nike Nationals Event to compete against the top 16 teams in the country.  The event is held at the Riverview Park Activities Center in North Augusta, South Carolina and showcases 24 Elite Nike travel team programs along with 16 of the nation's premier Elite 15U teams. Nike Nationals is recognized as the most exclusive and competitive event in the Nation.

 

Along with Nike Nationals in South Carolina, the California Storm competes in some of the most competitive club basketball events in the country, including the Boo Williams Nike Invitational (Hampton, VA).  The Boo Williams Nike Invitational is a staple of the NCAA-Certified spring viewing period. It gives new up-and-comers a chance to test their game against some of the best and brightest at the grassroots level of girls' high school basketball.

 

 

The Nike National Invitational Tournament held in Chicago Illinois, is considered by most analysts and collegiate basketball coaches to be the most competitive and prestigious summer basketball event in the United States.  Featuring 288 teams and close to 4,000 student-athletes from across the United States, the Showcase is one of the largest and most geographically diverse basketball tournaments in North America. It remains one of just four elite Nike-sponsored girls' basketball events conducted in the July observation period, status it has held since 1999.  In 2012, more than 550 of collegiate coaches actually registered their attendance (including representatives from virtually every NCAA Division I and II institution along with dozens of Division III, NAIA and junior college coaches) and the Nike Summer Showcase expects to eclipse this record in 2013. 

The Nike Oasis Invitational (Phoenix, AZ), which has quickly grown into one of the largest and most successful girls' basketball events in the Western United States; This event features over 200 teams and over 200 college colleges from Division I, II, II, NAIA and junior colleges from all over the west coast.

All of the these selected events are during the NCAA observation period and are chosen to provide maximum competitiveness and exposure for your child.
