The Ballard Girls Basketball mission is to provide a competitive, locally-based basketball program that builds players skills and confidence and prepares athletes to play middle school and high school basketball. Ballard Girls Basketball runs select teams, training, in house leagues and camps for girls 3rd grade through high school. Our professional coaches provide a positive, safe learning environment.

WE WILL HOLD A PARENT MEETING AT THE START OF EACH TRYOUT SESSION TO UPDATE YOU ON PRACTICE SCHEDULE, TOURNEY SCHEDULE AND COSTS.
Teams made by Feb, 18- NO PRACTICES MID-WINTER BREAK
If you make a team, you are guaranteed a spot for the Spring/Summer season that runs Feb 26 to July 8 or longer. Teams will hold 10 players on the game roster and 2-3 practice players who may be offered game time if a spot becomes available. Players who make a team may only have 5 unplanned practice absences. If the select team commitment is too much for your daughter, at this point, we do offer an in house league option with scrimmages Saturdays. We will also continue to offer trainings on days to be determined.
* While our players tend to draw mostly from the Ballard-area (due to our Ballard practice locations), we won't turn a player away if they are a good fit for the team but live outside of Ballard.
This Spring/Summer, we are please to continue our partnership with 3D Total Health who will offer a sports performance and injury prevention program to our athletes. Each athlete can attend one AMPT session/week at the time slot that works best for them. Check them out here.
Below is the commitment for each of the teams:
Black and White Reversible Uniform (if needed) $50
Payment plans and partial scholarship available.
Emmanuel Church: 503 N 50th St. (Entrance on 49th and Dayton)

Tips for Parents and Players:
Tryouts are designed to help find the right fit for each player. Through a series of drills and games, we will be looking for the following skills, decision-making and attitudes:
