We believe that AAU basketball should  focus on the bigger, long-term picture over the short-term, win-at-all-costs mentality. That's why it's vital that players find the right AAU program or team.


The TN Volcanoes AAU basketball program was created in the Spring of 2016 by Robert Hewgley and the core WBBL Team.  In 2019 we proudly expanded our program to include the Lady Volcanoes AAU program. We now offer boys 3rd grade - high school teams and girls 3rd - 9th grade teams. We expect our program to continue to grow as we establish our teams through player development. 

Our AAU program continues to be run by our devoted WBBL team and built on the same core beliefs and dedication to our players and parents that has made the WBBL and WBBL Offseason Development programs successful. For years we have worked hard to provide our players, WBBL supporters, and the basketball community a space to learn and enjoy the game of basketball.

Mission Statement

The purpose of the TN Volcanoes AAU program is to develop dedicated basketball players on and off the court. We provide athletes the opportunity to work on the most modern skills in order to play at a higher level of basketball. It is our belief that athletes need to be treated fair and to be developed at a young age; therefore, everyone that is a part of our Volcanoes program is offered 3 hours of team practice per week and an additional 3 hours of skill work. 

Our players are taught and mentored by knowledgeable and dedicated coaches. Our staff teaches effort, sportsmanship, and team camaraderie as core values. Our coaches collaborate with one another as a team to maintain a cohesive basketball curriculum. It is our belief that it is the process not the result that improves players on and off the court. Our program is fueled by our passion for basketball and player development. It is our goal to help our players reach their goals in life, make their school teams, learn sportsmanship, understand the value of teamwork, while also making lifelong friendships and having fun.
