Thank you to those who participated in our Fall/Winter Select Team Tryouts! We had a record number of athletes tryout enabling us to create highly competitive teams for this season.
If you missed tryouts, please email Sara at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can tell you about possible mid-season openings and to let you know when our Spring/Summer season tryouts will be.
Fall In House League Season: Sept 20-Nov.13 (8 weeks)
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, and/or c) players who want to develop their skills with positive, professional coaches.
Areas of focus will be on finishing around the basket, proper shooting form, understanding team shot selection, pivoting and passing, team motion offensive spacing and timing, and man-to-man defensive position and footwork.
Games will include an In House coach for each team and a ref. Spectators are welcome. We will create teams for parity but buddy requests are taken at registration.
The time commitment is 2 hours a week. It is ok to miss these but we would like you to mark your availability on Team Snap so we can find subs if needed.

The Ballard 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 Basketball runs select and elite teams, training, in house leagues and camps for boys and girls 1st -12th.
During the pandemic, our mission has expanded to provide a safe, active and social environment for even more elementary and middle school students. We've created other sports pods mostly by hiring high school and college students who are invested in our mission.
No one will be turned away for financial reasons. If you would like a full or partial scholarship, please ask.

Hi Sara -
I just wanted to write to tell you that Coaches Ross and Jared have been fabulous these last two months. My daughter Evie LOVES this class, and she has learned so much. Ross and Jared have done an exceptional job of keeping the kids focused, on task, having fun, and learning all the time. I have told them that they are doing a wonderful job, but I wanted to make sure you knew as well. They have excellent control over the class, they are very confident, and they are passing on so much knowledge to the kids. Rain or shine, this class has been the highlight of the last few months, and we will be so sad to see it end.
"We so appreciate these basketball sessions and don't know where we would be without them. These kids need all the movement and socializing they can get! Thank you so much for working hard to make this happen."
