2019-2020 Fall/Winter Select Team Details

Most 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 child 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 practice player and scrimmage positions.  

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'd like to encourage all of our players to check out  VICE ATHLETICS (formerly 3D Total Health) who offers a sports performance and injury prevention program to youth athletes. Check them out here. This program is NOT included in the price of your team fee.

Below are some initial details for each of the teams:  

  • 5th Grade Girls - 2 practices/week, Holds 10 game players and up to 3 practice players, Practices are Mondays 6-7:15pm and Tuesday 6:15-7:45pm at Small Faces, 7 Local Tournaments, Coaches Michelle Gallagher (Fall) and Emma Seymour (Fall/Winter)
