To the prospective 2017 STORM parents;

We are very excited that 2017 will be the fourth season for the BLOOMINGTON STORM Girls Basketball Program 

We expect again to be successful and competitive on day one by choosing kids with a history of being coachable, smart, team and family orientated with great attitudes and great parents. We'll teach and coach our kids to be humble, to be excited for the success of all their teammates, play the game the correct way with passion and to always be prepared on the court.  

We understand and appreciate that you have several choices as to where you and your child will be participating and playing basketball this summer. We also understand that kids and families have many other interests besides basketball and will do everything we can to accommodate and be cognizant of other sports, interests and more importantly family time and vacations.  

As a coach and a father of a high school athlete I would encourage you to research the success of the coaches, the fun factor for the kids and the return on investment for the parents in every program before making a decision.  

We believe our program philosophy as well as our coaching abilities and experiences will win games, get kids to work harder and play smarter than they ever have before all while both parents and players are actually having fun will definitely be worth the investment.  

 Thank you 

Coach Tom Whiting
