The Minnesota Fury is proud to be an adidas sponsored program and Minnesota's ONLY girls member of the adidas Uprising Gauntlet. Each year our top team will compete in the Platinum Gauntlet, a 32 team league, with the chance to be crowned adidas National Champions!
In 2018, our Minnesota Fury 2019 Gauntlet team will be in the 8-team Platinum Gauntlet Midwest Division and will battle through two weekends of League Play in front of coaches from nearly every college in America. Those weekends will seed teams for the National Championship Bracket at one of the most prestigious exposure events in the country, adidas Nationals!
We are also excited that our club's reputation has granted us the opportunity to have two teams in the Gold Gauntlet. In 2018, our Minnesota Fury 2020 Gauntlet and Minnesota Fury 2021 Gauntlet teams will also play two weekends of Divisional play to set up the Gold Gauntlet National Championship Bracket at adidas Nationals.
adidas All-America Camp - Portland, OR
The adidas Sponsorship will give players in the Minnesota Fury the opportunity to be chosen to participate in the adidas All-America Camp in Portland, OR. Adidas is the only shoe company on the girls side to put substantial funds into running a camp of this kind. Chosen players have their travel and lodging paid for and receive an abundance of exclusive adidas gear! Adidas All-America Camp is attended by almost every National scouting service and also by USA Basketball representatives!
adidas Select Team USA - Overseas Trip
Each year 12 players are chosen from the adidas All-America Camp for an all expense paid trip to Europe to play games against foreign competition. In 2017, the team visited and competed in Italy. Most of the shoe companies offer up a trip like this for their boy's sponsored program, but adidas is the only one giving girls this once in a lifetime opportunity!
