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.

Fundraising

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:

  • Kraken shoot-a-thon
  • Brown Bear Car Wash Ticket Sales
  • Krispy Kreme Donut Sales
  • Kraken Apparel Fundraiser
  • Cookie Dough Fundraiser
  • Hosted adult & junior tournaments
