Spring Season FAQ
Why should my player join a Hoopaholics team?
A: We boast the best coaching for youth basketball in Puget Sound. Your player will learn from the best - from coaches that truly care about their players and their success. Our teams really enjoying playing together and our players enjoy working hard to build successful teams. We have been serving the Puget Sound area since 2003, and look forward to many more years teaching our players to play the game the right way. The difference is our coaching!
What level of competition are the teams?
A: We are a select basketball program that serves all skills levels and backgrounds. We understand the rapid growth process in youth and work hard to facilitate their development with strong habits on and off the court. Our teams compete in AAU Leagues and Tournaments across the Puget Sound area.
What do we need to do to register for tryouts?
A: Yes! Both returning and new players for Spring season need to register and attend a tryout to be eligible to be placed on a Spring team.
What is the cost of tryouts?
A: There is no cost to tryout.
Does my player need to attend both tryouts to make a team?
A: No. Though we encourage both to attend, we only require one tryout. No player, even returning players, are guaranteed a spot on a team. We want to put the best teams together but are proud of the fact that most of our teams have played together for several seasons.

How many teams are there?
A: We aim to have two or more teams per grade level 4th through 8th, depending on commitments and tryout attendees.
How many days per week is practice; and where?
A: Teams will practice twice per week M-THURS at locations in North Seattle and Shoreline. This info will be available once players are asked to join a team.
Where does COMPETITION fit in with Hoopaholics.
A: We believe working hard and doing your best leads to the fun of succeeding together as a team. Fun can often have a lazy or care free attitude, but we perceive it as the enjoyment of the process of hard work and developing basketball and life skills. Competition within ourselves and our teammates fuels our desire to be the best player and team we can be - winning is just a byproduct of our work ethic and good habits built over time.
Who are the Coaches?
A: We are proud of all our coaches - qualified and experienced, but more importantly, care about their players and their success. Our coaches value the details of the game and work hard to build strong basketball habits in our players. Our coaches understand the quality time in the gym it takes to build these habits and their loyalty to our program and to the players they teach speaks volumes about who they are and is represented by how successful their teams are.

What is the cost of the Spring Season?
A: This will be determined by Leagues/Tournaments each team selects but is between $200 and $300 per month, a competitive pricing plan for select basketball. Monthly payment plans are available. Payment plans will be finalized once players are asked to join a team.
Mutdung (Pronounced MAH-DOON) is our Hoopaholics feature player of the month.
By Marques Chinn
As of today, Mutdung has blossomed into a star player. Not only is he supremely talented, but plays with a high motor and gives maximum effort in both practices and games. If Mutdung is considered a star player, you wouldn't know it by his demeanor. He is a very unselfish teammate who has no problem letting others shine around him, that's why everyone around him is better off for having him in their lives.
I've been very lucky to have such an impact in Mutdung's life as a coach and role model. Mutdung is a very bright kid who gets A's & B's in school and shows great character. He is a true leader who doesn't follow the crowd and stands up for other kids who have trouble standing up for themselves.
As his coach, I'm so proud of how his skills have improved on the court and how talented of a player he has become. However, as his mentor, I'm more proud of the young man he has become. Mutdung has a bright future and I feel fortunate to be a part of his life and make whatever impact I can to help him reach his goals.
Congrats to our tournament Champions!
Thanks for a great tournament!
