Experience Great Challenges and Great Success!!!
Si View Metro Parks offers an advanced basketball program, Mount Si Select Basketball, for boys and girls in grades 4-8. Our goal is to further the development of young players into committed athletes before they reach high school. This program teaches skills needed to contend at a competitive level on the basketball court as well as confidence needed to overcome many of life’s challenges. Teams play in the Eastside Travel League and the Mercer Island Peak League. Practices take place two to three times per week depending on local gym availability. Games include home, away and tournament play throughout the eastside communities. Regular season games fall on weekends, and some tournaments may fall on Friday evenings. Season runs from October to March.
