Nova 94 Feet and Elevate Elite are pleased to announce that we are one of only 32 Girls programs nationwide that will compete on the Adidas Gauntlet Platinum Circuit. As a result, we will provide a premium experience for our Girls high school players to receive the maximum exposure possible. We will be forming a Girls Platinum high school team and a Girls Gold high school team. Both of these teams will play on invite-only circuits against the other top Adidas teams from around the United States.
The Elevate Elite Girls Platinum and Gold high school teams will be coached by Bruno Corras. Coach Bruno has been coaching high school girls for many years. For the Classes of 2017 and 2018 alone, Coach Bruno has helped 6 girls reach their dream to receive a Division 1 basketball scholarship, in addition to many other players that have gone on to play Division 2 and Division 3 basketball in college. Our Girls 9th Grade team will be coached by Christie Shumadine. Coach Shu helped start the Nova 94 Girls program and this will be her 7th year coaching with the program.
The Adidas Gauntlet Platinum Circuit will take teams to Dallas for the April Live Period, and to Indianapolis and Atlanta for the July Live Periods, where they will play in front of a large number of college coaches. In addition to our Platinum and Gold teams, we also intend to have additional 17U, 16U, 15U and 14U teams participate on the Adidas Platinum Circuit.
Our Boys high school teams will play on the Adidas Silver Gauntlet Circuit, with an opportunity earn a spot to play in the Adidas Gauntlet Finale in New York City in July.
