The Hermiston Basketball Club Program was started in the fall of
2006, as a group of AAU teams and the Hermiston School District
found the need to organize and give all area children easier
access to more youth basketball programs. We needed a way to get
more players involved and organize available gym facilities.
We envisioned a program with more AAU players and teams at
every grade level; more structured and organized participation;
coaches with a better skill set and more training; and promotion
for the entire Hermiston Basketball Program. The Hermiston
Basketball Club program will encourage coaches to take time
during practice to teach and lecture on things such as: positive
attitudes, personal commitment, teamwork, determination,
respect, honesty, academics, citizenship and of course, the
fundamentals of basketball and athleticism.
We hope the
program will continue to grow in the years that come. Recently,
we have added Hermiston Youth Basketball Association (HYBA)
under our umbrella. We hope to offer recreation levels through
HYBA and more competitive teams with AAU.
encourage volunteerism through players and families through our
work with the annual "Hermiston
Takin it to the Streets 3-on-3 Tournament",
the annual "Autumn AAU Basketball Classic", the annual
"Holiday Hoop Classic", the annual "For the Love of
the Game" and the "Best of the
The Hermiston Basketball
Club hopes all of the players will walk away from our program
not only better basketball players, but also better citizens
within our community. We thank you for your participation,
support and dedication to our program!
