Fall & Winter Select Teams and In House Leagu Registration
Thank you for your interest in Ballard Basketball! And thank you for your patience as we put together all the pieces of our program and schedule.
This time in between seasons gives us space to reflect, recalibrate and reestablish the Ballard Basketball program. Through the pandemic we have been honored to welcome so many new athletes. As we enter the Fall/Winter season, we remind you of a few approaches that make Ballard Basketball work and stay a special place:
A Space for Everyone - A Community of Teams - A Place to Grow
Fall In house leagues (Sept 20-Nov.13)- Our Fall In House Leagues (3rd/4th boys, 3rd/4th girls, 5th/6th boy, 5th/6th girls, 7th-9th boys, 7th-9th girls) are an opportunity to keep your skills sharp and get game experience. This non-tryout league is ideal for: a) players who play other select sports, b) players who don't make a select team, c) players who want to develop their skills with positive, professional coaches.

Girls Select Team Information - If you are selected for one of our Select Teams after tryouts (see below for details), you will be making a strong commitment to attend practices, trainings and games from September through the beginning of March. Your teammates depend on your full participation which means that you will be expected to attend the once a week 2 hour Team Practice, as well as at least one additional training a week. Additional trainings will be offered at multiple days and times and players can attend unlimited training sessions per week. Select players should plan on attending at least 90% of games on F/Sat/Sun every second or third weekend or 27-35 games. You are allowed to play for your school, CYO, Feeder, Rec team or another sport but if you are on one of our select teams then it will have to be secondary. For the 6 months (2 months for High School teams), players will receive a MINIMUM of 115 hours of court time plus team socials, game film study and a player evaluation program. Team fees will be $2300/player/season ($750/high school player) payable in monthly installments via Team Snap or offline. Financial Aid is available for anyone needing assistance.
