Kraken teams will compete in 8-10 competitions during the Spring/Summer season. some teams will play a combination of a league and tournaments. Top teams may compete in travel and NCAA viewing tournaments.
Once tryouts are complete, the season schedule will be formulated to put each team in the best competition scenario for their level. We strive to have our teams competing in competitions that match and stretch their level of play.
Twice weekly practices 1.5-2 hours / night, Mondays thru Fridays. Additional training classes will be offered throughout the week for those athletes that would like to work on a specific skill or just want the extra training time.
Coaches and families have the option of attending additional competitions outside of the Pacific Northwest. These elected tournaments are an additional cost for families. If the team would like to explore the addition of a destination tournament, the club will do a cost analysis and present to the team families for consideration. The estimate will include: team entry fee, coach travel & meals.
Teams will be scheduled for 30 minutes of strength & conditioning before one of their weekly practices. These sessions are focused on performance training for basketball. Additional performance training classes and sessions are offered.

Kraken makes every effort to keep the costs of our programs low through various fundraising efforts. Kraken hosts adult skill clinics and tournaments, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting our youth programs. Club Fundraisers like Brown Bear car wash tickets, help offset our operating costs, and any tickets sold over the player minimum go directly to the player's Kraken Account, which they can use towards monthly dues, travel expenses and Kraken Gear.
Some examples of Club and Individual Fundraisers are:
