Despite starting the season without a single player ranked in the Top 10 in Michigan for the Class of 2017, Coach Love's 17-U team finished the season being ranked #23 in the United States.   https://kennykallina.wordpress.com/2016/08/03/top-club-teams-of-summer-2016/l.   The girls went undefeated at the Atlanta Summer Slam and won the prestigious and highly competitive event after knocking off national powerhouse programs, including two that were ranked higher nationally.  The Club ended the season with the highest national ranking of any team in the State of Michigan and did it in an old-fashioned blue collar way.  To date, 6 players from our 2017 Class have committed to play Division I Basketball and three have committed to play at the Division II level.  The group played short-handed at the Adidas Uprising Summer Championship but still advanced to the "Sweet 16."  We are immensely proud of the girls and hats off to our 2017 Coaches: Love, Stine, Wichtner & Horne.  Salute!

When our 2018 Team was initally assembled two years ago we knew that it would be a special group.  It has proven to be that and more.  This group has had tremendous success on the court over the past two years and has racked up a ton of Championships.  What is more impressive, and what no other Program in the State of Michigan can say about their Class of 2018, is that eight (8) different players from that roster already hold Division I scholarhip offers and another holds a Division II offer.  By any standard, this team has been an unqualified success.  These young ladies are hard working and Coach McAllister continues to push them to be their best.  When all is said and done we expect that every player on this roster will attend college on a basketball scholarship. 

Our classes of 2019 and 2020 have big shoes to fill but they are not shying away from the undertaking.  This group competed in and won Championships at several prestigious tournaments this summer.  As the summer progressed it was obvious that this group had the potential to be the best ever in the history of our Program.  Despite sometimes starting 4 "8th graders" this group simply overpowered the majority of our older and more experienced foes.  We believe that we have 5 of the top 10 Freshmen in the State of Michigan on our roster and some of the most promising 2019 players as well.  At least 13 players between the classes of 2019 and 2020 are being recruited by Division I schools and currently six (6) have Division I offers -- 3 of the players with offers have yet to play in a single High School game.  Although much work remains to be done, this is one of the best teams in the United States. Kudos to Coach Taylor and Coach Winston.
The Spring Session of the 2016 Season is in the books and it was an unqualified success for the Storm Program.  Our players have begun to collect additional scholarship offers and our teams have had success each and every weekend out.  In our inaugral season with Adidas our two Gauntlet teams have made an immediate impact.  Storm-Love earned a 10 seed (out of 38) teams in the National Gauntlet Division-- he has a 22-4 record, whereas Storm-Wichtner earned a 2 seed in the Elite Gauntlet Division.  In the process these teams compiled a Gaudy record and won championships at big events.  Our 3rd 11th grade team (Horne) was beset by injuries and roster turnover but is primed for the second half of the season after recently adding new players.  Coach Mcallister (10th) has picked up where he left off last year and his players continue to collect offers.  They have won 3 major championships this Spring and have a 30-5 record. Our Regional 10th grade team (Coach Keiffer) kicked off competition in May and has a championship under their belt.  They are a well coached and enthusiatic group with players who have the potential to break out.  Our 9th grade team (Coach Taylor) has recently started to dominate.  Players in that group have already received offers and several are being recruited by Division 1 Programs.  They have 4 championships and are currently 19-5 after starting slowly.

As in past years, this year a plethora of Michigan Storm Family Members garnered a number of post-season accolades.  Although the list provided is not complete and will be updated in the near future, we salute these young women for their success this season.  Click the button below or go to the News Tab above to read more.



Back to the drawing board.  This year we made the decision to divide our tryouts by age/grade due to the tremendous turnout in 2015.  Although we  anticipated a slight increase over last year we quickly reallized that our numbers would far exceed the 2015 turnout.  This year 140 players came to tryouts and gave it their all.  They participated in advanced drill work and had the opportunity to show their skills during team scrimmages.  The decision making process following tryouts was agonizing and we ultimately added two teams to the Program.  Our 2017 teams will, as expected, be extremely competitive from top to bottom and our 2018 team (which has 4 2020's on the roster)  is expected to build onto the success that they achieved last year.  Our 2019 team has the potential to be one of the best groups that the program has ever had but that remains to be seen.  We are eager to get the season started and are expecting the best season in our history from top to bottom.

Our Program has competed in some of the largest and most competitive tournaments across the United States.  Many of our players put themselves on the national "map" by outplaying some of the best players in the country.  As a team we definitely represented the State of Michigan well and have defeated some of the best and most storied programs around.  Enjoy the video montage.
Over the past several years we have travelled to tournaments across Michigan and around the United States in an effort to expose our girls to the best competition that can be found. The girls have continually met the challenge and earned scholarships in the process. As a result of their commitment and competitive spirit our Program has been selected by Adidas to be one of thirty-two clubs from around the United States and Canada to participate in the Gauntlet Series.  We will play in Adidas tournaments in Indianapolis (IN) and Dallas (TX) before playing in the Adidas National Championships in Atlanta (GA) in July.  We are thrilled to receive this opportunity and our girls will be prepared to meet the challenge.  

There are still roster spots available on several of our teams and we eagerly await tryouts.  As we have stated in the past, we are not for everyone.  We are a program dedicated to provide quality basketball opportunities for young ladies who are seeking to continue their careers at the next level and for whom basketball is a "first" sport.  We play a challenging schedule that requires significant time commitments and travel during the summer months. 

​We are humbled beyond measure by the honors and successes bestowed upon our players and Program and we will not rest on our laurels.  We will strive to get better each and every year and we are always open to new ideas. The number of  inquiries that we receive weekly from parents from around Michigan (and beyond) who are interested in having their daughters join our organization is genuinely appreciated.  We look forward to the new challenges and successes ahead.

In a short time we have  put together one of the most competitive Middle School Programs in Michigan.  Our Flint group has been extremely competitive for the past year and have been one of the best teams in Michigan during their existence.  Our newly formed Detroit group has likewise not disappointed and have yet to lose a game as a team.  These groups were dominant when they were combined in January and they will only get better. There are already several potential future Miss Basketball candidates in the Program and we will continue to push them to get better and to respect and honor the game with hard work.  We are blessed to be able to work with such talented young ladies and are excited as we look towards the future.
