Thank you for your interest in Kraken Basketball Club. We are forming up to 4 Boys & Girls teams in each age group, 2nd-8th Grades and 15U-17U. Our Regional teams compete in competitions located in the greater Puget Sound area and may travel to tournaments in the Pacific Northwest. Our travel teams compete locally and in destination tournaments outside of the PNW. We are excited to have our top teams compete in the Adidas Jr. and Silver Gauntlet circuits. We also have 3 teams that compete on the UA Rise circuit. Our teams train at The Lair Courts and the Auburn Fieldhouse. Make sure to read up on our club team programs, and pick the one that makes the most sense for your family.
