Mission & Core Values

our mission

Red Storm Basketball was first started in 2005 with just one team. Over the next 7 years, Red Storm Basketball grew to have 4 teams between ages 13-17's. In August 2012, Fidelity Bank Sportsplex opened its doors and became home to Red Storm Basketball. With the addition of the new practice facility, Red Storm received a Nike Sponsorship to play on the EYBL Circuit. Over the next 3 years Red Storm sent over 25 kids to play college basketball through our Nike Team Louisiana program. Red Storm Basketball returned in 2018 to field teams in 5th-8th grades, quickly growing the program to have teams in 4th-11th grades in 2023.

our vision

Red Storm Basketball's vision to instill in our players confidence, commitment, leadership skills and integrity as a foundation for a productive and successful life.  Our goal is to teach our athletes respect for themselves, their peers and their community by instilling a code of ethics built on honesty, responsibility and team work.

Our players, families and volunteers work together to cultivate a disciplined environment so every child can reach their full potential, develop their talents and increase their skills in the game of basketball and more importantly in life.
