The New Orleans Hurricanes started their journey in 2016 in the NXL Semi-Pro division. The team consisted of players with Division 1 and some Professional experience, but they struggled and finished towards the bottom of the pack.

After a disappointing first season, the team reassessed their goals and decided to move down to Division 2 for the 2017 season. They had a slow start, but their hard work paid off with a win at the 2017 NXL Chicago Open. They finished 7th overall in the season after competing in 4 of the 5 events.

The team decided to remain in Division 2 for the 2018 season and achieved a 2nd place finish in Las Vegas, a 5th place finish at the Texas Open, and a 1st place finish at World Cup. They also had a Division 3 team competing in the USXBL Premier Division, where they took 1st place at the USXBL Planet Eclipse Open, G.I. Sportz Open, and the Empire Open, and a 2nd place finish at the USXBL National Championship, ultimately winning 1st place in the USXBL series. These successes showed the organization that they were learning how to win.

In 2019, the team returned to the NXL Semi-Pro division and competed in all five events. They finished in 3rd place in the series, with 3rd in Vegas, 5th in Texas, 3rd in Philadelphia, 11th in Chicago, and 6th at World Cup. Despite a strong showing in the 2019 season, they knew they would have to work harder to win.

The organization knew they needed an experienced coach and targeted Mike Bianca. He joined the team for the 2020 season and led them to victory at World Cup and first place in the series.

In 2021, their focus was on achieving success, and they accomplished that by being the most consistent team in the Semi-Pro division. This earned them the NXL series title again and the opportunity to compete in the Professional division for the 2022 season.

In 2022, the team achieved one of its core goals of competing with the top 20 teams in the world. They set three objectives for their first event: win a point, connect points, and win a match. They surpassed these goals by achieving a 6-0 mercy win in their first match and making it to Sunday twice during the season, including a 4-0 prelim finish. They concluded their rookie season ranked 11th in the world.
