February Practice Schedule: 2022

We were fortunate! With the rise of the Omicron variant, there was a threat that we could lose some gyms. We were able to secure practices for all 28 teams throughout the month!


January Practice Schedule: 2022

We apologize for the delay in getting the January schedule completed. There have been some complications as gyms we were counting on have delayed rentals due to the Omicron variant and will not be avaialble in January as expected.


DECEMBER PRACTICE SCHEDULES

We typically publish our December practice schedule once we have a firm idea of how many teams we will have in each location. Things often change at tryouts and we do not always end up with the teams we plan for. We have always published our December practice schedule after tryouts so we do not have to make several revisions. 


Once complete, we will post a PDF Eastside and Northend schedule here.


Practice Updates

December Snow Closures

Note that unavoidable closures due to weather or school cancellations will not be made up. We will typically post updates no later than 2:00 PM the day of practice. 

  • 12/29 (Wednesday) Practices at BSC (Northend) have been cancelled for the rest of the week. Out of an abundance of caution: with icy roads and more snow in the forecast, the club will cancel the last two days of practice this week at the BSC gym. Many players are on vacation as it is, and with limited numbers attending practice, it is in best interest to keep our players (parents), and coaches off the roads.
  • 12/28 (Tuesday) Practice at Bellevue College cancelled for the rest of the week. College closed due to snow closure and staffing.
  • Practice at Beautiful Savior Church Gym: Practices will go on as scheduled. We do, however, ask that participants use their best judgment based on their own situation. Please only attend if you feel it is safe to do so. Side note: the parking lot has not been shoveled, but it is drivable. Use caution and plan ahead. 
  • 12/27 Practice at Bellevue College cancelled. College closed due to snow closure. We will update regarding the rest of the week as we hear from the college.

From the college website: " Date posted: December 26, 2021

Bellevue College main and north campuses will close for all classes and activities on December 27, 2021, to ensure the college has adequate time to clear the snow. Please avoid coming onto campus (unless you are scheduled essential personnel).

We will continue to evaluate conditions on campus and in the surrounding area throughout the night and over the next day or two. If we make the decision to close campus or have a late start/early closure, we will attempt to make notifications as early as 4:30am, but no later than 5:30am, as conditions permit.

Where the Northend started! We opened our Northend club in 2005 when our club director, Tony Miranda, started coaching at Edmonds College. The Northend has been a big part of our club with our last three teams that have participated at Nationals coming from our Northend. 

Edmonds College has not been available since March of 2020. We hope to have access again starting January of 2022. We use Edmonds College for some of our older teams. Our practices at Edmonds give our 16's, 17's and 18's teams a chance to practice in a college gym with better resources and potentially scrimmage with the college team.

Secondary Gyms

Juanita High School

We use Juanita High School primarily on Sundays. Juanita serves as the unofficial center point for our club and teams from both Eastside and Northend practice here. It's a great gym - it's 6 courts gives us the chance to get several teams practicing at the same time and gives coaches some resources they do not have at other practice gyms. We have also used Juanita for several tournaments and club-based scrimmages.

Practice Schedules

Starting in January, team practice schedules are posted the calendar page.  In November and December, we typically post a PDF version of the calendar. 

On the Calendar page, select your TEAM TAG on the bottom of calendar to see all your team's activities. The dates should also show up on your team page or on your Sport Engine Ap.

Since we do rent schools where school-related programs take precedence, there is occasion where a practice may be cancelled or moved. Those changes will be made on the calendar page as well when possible. If it is a sudden change, we will alert the coaches directly.
