The Carolina Crush AAU Basketball Organization was established in Irmo South Carolina in 2003 by Coach Ouzts and his wife. The organization was designed to expose player’s talents to the College Coaches to assist in getting Athletic Scholarships. Coach Ouzts has coached many players to go on to Division I colleges. Our goal is to see every child that enters into our program get a College scholarship to offset parents paying out of pocket for College. If you feel your child has the ability to compete with some of the best players in the nation, please contact the Carolina Crush for more information about our program. We have teams for boy’s and girl’s ages 10u to 17u.
