Tryout Registration OPENS to athletes without previous season club experience on JULY 1st. We will accept these registrations on a "space available" basis.

*It is advised that you have prior club team experience before signing up for these camps. The camp format is Offense Day 1 and Defense Day 2. The first 2 hours are individual skill-building and assessment, the second 2 hours are 6 v 6 oriented drills, so a prior knowledge of team offense and team defense is optimal. It is our intention to have coaches that will be coaching 15-18's on staff at these camps. Eastside coaches at Ringdall, Northend coaches at Edmonds College.

UNDERSTANDING THE TRYOUT PROCESS

 

We have extensive information about the tryout process on a separate page. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with NW Juniors Tryout Process for our club season so you understand how it works if your athlete receives an offer. Included on that page: 

  • Selection Process
  • Signing Process
  • After Tryouts

TRYOUTS AND TEAM LOCATIONS

 

Our Club offers teams in two separate geographic locations: "Eastside" and "Northend". These locations are determined by where the teams practice - not by where the players live. 

Players often times live in close proximity to both locations and must choose which opportunity is the best fit for them. If your drive to the Northend practice gyms is manageable, we encourage you to choose our Northend teams for tryouts, since due to population density there are less players trying out for our Northend teams. 


EASTSIDE TEAMS

 

Our Eastside Teams practice primarily in the Bellevue/Factoria area. Athletes North-South from Renton to Kirkland and East-West from Seattle to Snoqualmie typically play on our Eastside teams. For a full list of Eastside practice gyms, visit our PRACTICES page.
