Upcoming Events

Welcome to the East Carolina Storm 12 and under website!  The East Carolina Storm have a twenty-five year history girls AAU basketball under the guidance of Debbie Johnson.  This year's team consisted of a group of girls from Kinston and Greenville.  The team was coached by Ricky Carlyle(head) and Scott Brown(assistant).   Even though they did not win a tournament, the Storm did finish 2nd and 4th in Invitational tournaments.  They finished 3rd in the Eastern Regional AAU Tournament and 12th in the State overall.  Not bad for a group of girls who never played together. 

Even though this year we did not hoist any championship trophies, we learned a lot of valuable lessens about basketball and life.  We made new friends from all over the state and established new relationships right here in Eastern North Carolina.  In my book that was more important than any championship.  That is really what AAU is all about.  Sure winning is great, but improving oneself is more important!

Stay tuned for upcoming happenings with the East Carolina Storm.  This fall will bring about new and exciting opportunities!  Until then, HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!
