TEAM LOCATIONS & Tryouts

Our Club offers teams in two seperate geographic locations - Eastside and Northend. Often times players that live in close proximity to both locations choose to tryout for both (North Seattle, University, Kirkland, Woodinville, Bothell, Redmond, Mill Creek). In that case, players must attend both tryouts. They do not need to pay two tryout fees. One tryout fee covers all NW Juniors tryouts.
