Hurricane Athletics offers basketball at the middle school, junior varsity, and varsity levels, for both boys and girls.

Practice locations vary. Games are generally no further than 1 hour away, and it is the parents' responsibility to get their athlete to the games, although car pooling is encouraged and often available.

Late Interest Tryouts
We will post dates in September and October for late interest tryouts. Please note that late interest tryouts will only be available in the event we have openings on a team, so it is important to make the original tryout date.
Who Can Try Out: Any home schooled student (or a traditionally-schooled student whose school does not offer girls basketball), 6th grade to 12th grade. It is the age eligibility policy of Greenville Hurricanes that athletes for the 2019/2020 school year do not turn 11 after 9/1/19 and do not turn 19 before 7/1/19.

The practice schedule will vary based on game schedules and gym availability. We will post a schedule of practice dates and time as well as have them in the SI app for easy tracking.
Game Schedule: Will be available on your Sports Illustrated Play app after registering online.
Parents: Our goal is to develop a program that provides a competitive environment while giving the players the opportunity for development. We are excited to be able to reduce the cost of participation this year due to the fundraising.
As we did last year, we are breaking up the fees into two parts:
1) the amount due for registration, and
2) the amount each athlete will need to generate in donations/fundraisers before Nov 1st
Girls basketball registration fee covers the following costs
Administrative expenses to support the team (insurance, personnel, etc)
Operations - facilities expenses, officials, equipment
Participation in the 2019/20 season
$30 off for a sibling/relative to attend the Tropical Storm Basketball Camp in 2020
Participation in the 2020 Skills Clinic (about 15-17 sessions) Value = $75
Free access to the games for immediate family: mom, dad, and siblings.
JVG/VG - $100 + $100 fundraising
MSG - $75 + $100 fundraising
This is a critical aspect of our program. With more time available between tryouts and the first game, it will allow everyone time to raise money. We will have individual and group initiatives that each player can use to raise funds to reduce the cost of the program-related fees. If you have any ideas for raising funds, please let us know. We will provide some additional ongoing ways for individual players to raise money to offset program related costs.
Other Season Costs:
