FROM COACH STAUDACHER:
As we approach our summer season, I wanted to send out some initial information.
For the month of June, basketball shifts from a (non-cut) LWBBA run program into to a (non-cut) LWHS coaching staff run program.
I recently received an email from our athletic director stating that registration for “Summer Athletics” is now open through Final Forms. All participants must be registered and cleared for participation, similar to our normal basketball season. The school fee is $50 per sport (students who qualify for free or reduced lunch can have the fees waived), and registration closes to everyone on June 16th. Parents must also ensure that players have updated medical exams on file. So, please make sure you all get registered before we start next month! https://lakewashington-wa.finalforms.com/
Our basketball schedule will begin with a Player & Parent Meeting on Tuesday May 31st from 5:00pm-6:00pm in the North (new) gym. This meeting will be used to talk about our basketball program at the high school, the upcoming summer season, the upcoming winter season, as well as to answer any questions that anyone may have. I also want to use this meeting to meet any of you that I have not yet met, and to make sure that everyone is registered on Sports Engine – where 99% of our communication happens.
I will work on getting our June calendar finalized and uploaded for everyone to view, but here is a rough idea of our June schedule:
*Practices will be either Mondays or Wednesdays from 4:00pm-6:00pm (on some occasion both), beginning on Wednesday June 1st
*The first day incoming 9th graders are allowed to participate will be Monday June 6.
*All teams will play in 2 tournaments: June 10-12 & June 17-19
*There will be additional summer league games played on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
*Save the date in July: We will be hosting our annual youth Kang Camp this year from July 18-21. Our high school players will serve as counselors and assistant counselors.
As a reminder, team placement decisions and rotations that we make this summer are for June ball ONLY. After the summer, players will then return to play LWBBA-led (non-cut) Fall Ball, which includes off-season league play and practices from the Sept-Nov. Then in November, players will compete in official tryouts that feed our official teams for the winter season.
We look forward to seeing you back in the gym and continuing to build off of our great success last season. See you all soon!
LWBBA is excited to announce the return of our Kang Basketball Day Camp on July 18-July 21 from 9am-11:30am for boys & girls entering 3rd-8th grades. If you or someone you know might be interested, please spread the word! Spaces are limited, so act now.

The 4-day camp will be run by LWHS Basketball Coaches with fundamentals, games, and fun! Varsity players serve as head counselors and other High School players serve as assistant counselors. The camper fee will be $200. Sessions will be divided with incoming 3-5th graders in one gym, and incoming 6-8th graders another gym (9:00am-11:30am). The camp will be held at Lake Washington High School.
Varsity - Winter 2021
Lake Washington Boys' select basketball feeder program participates in both tournaments and in the ETL (Eastside Travel League) in which we play other high school feeder teams.
