Practice Times: Each team will have an average of two 2-hour practices per week. Practice time slots are Mon, Tues, Wed or Thurs nights between 5 and 10pm and Sat or Sun between 1:30 - 9:30 pm. Some coaches may opt to have 1 weeknight and 1 weekend practice, while other teams will have two weeknight practices. Schedules are determined by coach and court availability.
During the months of December and January, practice schedules may not be “regular” as school sites become unavailable due to school uses - especially High School Basketball - and weather closures. We work hard to schedule all teams so their schedule is consistent but this is not always possible during these two months.
Practice locations: We will generally be using Hamilton MS, North Seattle Church and Shoreline Christian High School.
Practice Schedules are posted here.
