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 Sept 9- NO PRACTICES WINTER BREAK
If you make a team, you are guaranteed a spot for the Fall/Winter season.
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. We try to select players for a balanced, even roster and aim to play everyone fairly equally, but we also have a 1 quarter minimum playing time rule. If your daughter is getting the 1 quarter minimum, we will talk to you about our reasoning.
While we want players to play multiple sports, we do require a steady practice commitment to be able to compete in local tournaments and build team momentum. Select team members may only have 5 unplanned practice absences per season.
If the select team commitment is too much for your daughter, we do offer an In House League option on Sundays. We will also continue to offer trainings on days to supplement team practices or instead of the select team commitment.
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 Fall/Winter, 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. This program is included in the price of your team fee.
New players or players who have out-grown their uniforms may purchase them for $50 on the registration link.
Below is the commitment for each of the teams:
Most Fall/Winter team fees will be $1280/game player or $800/practice player. Our 9th grade team will be $640/game player. Our 10th & Up team will be $330/game player. Payment plans and partial scholarship available.
Emmanuel Church: 503 N 50th St. (Entrance on 49th and Dayton)
Ballard Boys & Girls Club: 1767 NW 64th St
Small Faces: 92nd and 14th Ave NW
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:
Ball handling, passing, defense, rebounding, scoring, timing and spacing, toughness, aggressiveness, focus, awareness, coach-ability, and communication.
If a player does not make a team, she will have the option on playing in our In House League (see tab on this site).
If you have any questions, please contact club director Sara: firstname.lastname@example.org
