The Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) has been raising champions for more than a century. Since its inception in 1888, the AAU has set the standard for amateur sports in the United States with one goal in mind: “Sports For All, Forever.”


We host FOUR annual AAU Basketball Tournaments
Autumn Kickoff Classic - November
Hermiston Holiday Hoops - December

For the Love of the Game - February 


Hermiston Youth Basketball Association. This is the recreational program that has been around Hermiston for decades! It is open to all Hermiston boys and girls grades 3rd-6th. 3rd & 4th graders are randomly placed on teams.

Over the past 16 seasons, DRIVE Sports and Hermiston Basketball Club hosted nearly 3,360 Youth Basketball Teams, for a reason! Hermiston has the best basketball facilities around. HANDS DOWN. We use certified officials on our courts and give out the best tournament prizes and coaches gifts. The Championship Game introductions is done “Varsity Style” with lights, music and announcers. We have not found a league schedule we couldn’t work around. Our tournaments have the highest quality, lowest priced tournament gear for the teams. We offer online registration AND Tournament Series Discounts!
