Welcome to the Mukilteo Knights Girls Basketball Program. Our goal is to unite and prepare 3rd -8th grade girl basketball players for high school level play. Our teams are formed through a tryout process usually held sometime from late August to late September.
Our 5th-8th grade teams compete in the Wesco AAU League during the winter season and have the option to participate in fall & spring leagues as well as tournaments throughout the year. Our 3rd-4th grade teams will compete in the Snohomish County Boys & Girls Club winter season as well as tournaments.
Practices are held two days a week at Mukilteo School District gyms.
Knights Basketball continually strives to keep player costs to a minimum. Considering the fact that many select sports programs charge as much as $1,500 to $2,000 a year for player fees, Knights Basketball is great value for the level of competition provided.
Most of the Knights teams play in 2 to 5 outside tournaments during the basketball season. The majority of these tournaments are held in the Puget Sound area, however in some cases, teams might travel to other parts of the state depending on time and cost considerations. Each tournament runs about $20 to $25 per player.
Team rosters are typically comprised of 10-12 players and playing time is earned, not guaranteed. Performance, commitment, effort, attitude and ability are rewarded with extra playing time. The goal of Knights Basketball is to play and develop everyone, but as a select program, there will be some variation in playing time among players.
Although space for players is limited, the Knights organization encourages ALL players to keep playing and improving their game. Players who don’t fill a spot on a Knights roster still have the opportunity to play basketball through local leagues or other select teams. Young basketball players grow and develop at different rates and at different age levels. For this very reason, Knights tryouts are held each year.
One note worth mentioning is that Knights activities will NEVER conflict with middle school basketball games or practices.
