The Storm will play the Pure Passion Sports team from New Jersey at West isle Composite High School on Friday and at Kensington Intermediate-Senior High School on Saturday. The doors will open at both venues at 6:15 p.m., with both contests starting at 7 p.m.
A canteen will be on site for both games.
The cost for the Westisle game is $4 for adults, $1 for high school and junior high students and elementary students are free.
