TRYOUTS - August 29th, 2022

Competition season is finally here!  The girls have been working hard on their skills throughout the spring and summer and now it's time to form teams and start playing games!  There will be 4 competition teams for girls going into 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade.  Tryouts are on Monday, August 29th from 6:30pm - 8:30pm at the Bellevue College Gymnasium (3000 Landerholm Cir SE, Bellevue, WA 98007).

If your daughter can't make the tryout, please let us know ASAP so we can discuss another arrangement to have her evaluated.

Check In

  • Parents are required to check in their child.  We’ll have a table setup just outside the gym.  Check in starts at 6:15pm and gym doors open at 6:30pm.
  • There is no fee for the tryout. 

What to Bring?

  • Water (no sports drinks please, as only water is allowed in the gym)
  • Basketball (if your daughter doesn’t have one, we will have extras).

What to Wear?

  • Proper athletic attire and a good pair of basketball or running shoes

What to Expect?

  • Coach Amber, Coach Mike, and Coach Robert will be putting the girls through different drills to evaluate fit for the teams.  The drills will be familiar to those that came out to the skills and drills clinics. As always, we will be promoting a fun and competitive atmosphere!
  • Shortly after tryouts, you will be notified if your daughter has made a team. 

Newport Girls Select Basketball provides a competitive basketball program to 4th - 8th grade players in the catchment area for Newport High School that builds players skills and confidence and prepares athletes to play middle school and high school basketball. Newport Select is part of the Eastside Travel League (ETL). All programs in the ETL are "feeder" teams, meaning the teams are formed by players from within their high school catchment area.  - Our catchment area includes students residing within the Newport High School boundary, regardless of where they attend school. Waivered spots are sometimes available if there has not been enough interest for a team from within our boundary area. 

The Newport Girls Select Basketball program has a strong grounding in the fundamentals of basketball as well as advanced game play strategies.

The mission of the Newport Girls Select Basketball program is to provide a constructive and rewarding experience for future student-athletes of Newport High School through focusing on individual and team development.

Our coaches strive to develop each player through teaching the fundamentals and skills of the game, while also providing a team first system for players to develop within.


Eastside Travel League

The Eastside Travel League exists to promote great sportsmanship and healthy youth basketball competition, while providing the opportunity for community based feeder programs to compete against one another.
