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.
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.
