Since the Gainesville Hurricanes was founded in 2010, its mission and focus as a non-profit club has been to provide expanded opportunities for youth to play and enjoy the game of basketball, support the development of character, sportsmanship and advance the visibility of youth basketball in Gainesville, Va. as well as the surrounding areas. We have continued to grow over the years to expand beyond, just AAU teams, but to offer training clinics tournaments, 3v3 Shootouts as well as the addition of the Hurricanes Crossover League.
We focus not only on the development of the players, but for our coaches as well. All Hurricanes AAU/Travel coaches must complete the VHSL and NFHS coaching curriculum. This is the same training that High School coaches must complete. Our travel teams also subscribe to all AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) guidelines and are required to become members of the AAU.
The Gainesville Hurricanes will be hosting its 3rd annual summer crossover league for boys grades 1 through 8 and girls 3 through 8th (2018-19 school year). The focus of the Hurricanes crossover league is player development for the intermediate to advanced student athlete in preparation for competitive basketball.
Players will be divided among the teams to make a competitive league. Each team will play approximately six games and the end of season tournament. Medals will be awarded for 1st and 2nd place. All games are tentatively planned for Sundays. We may add in a weeknight or Saturday game. Each team will have one indoor practice a week.
Evaluations will take place in May. Practices and games will start in June. The end-of-season tournament is tentatively schedule for the late July.
Teams will consist of 7–9 players.
All games will follow the standard National Federation High School (NFHS) and Virginia High School League Rules (VHSL).
