The Northwest Summer Pro League

Back in '97, Jamal Crawford was an unknown baller looking for respect from anyone who'd pay attention to his mad handles. So he tryed out for the NW Summer Pro League, made a team, and quickly started to etch out the story of Seattle's newest basketball star. Five years later, the Chicago Bull PG still gets his burn from Washington's only Pro-Am league alongside the top players the NW has to offer. Who's the next prepster to make a name for himself? It could be you...

The top players in the Pacific Northwest are preppin' their games and getting ready for a summer of serious hoops.  What's going on?  Well, The NW Summer Pro League starts up July 5th at Bellevue Community College.  There will be two open runs June 15th & 22nd so coaches can evaluate the talent level and make their "wish lists" for the upcoming league draft that will be held June 29th-30th. 

The coaches running the squads are looking for players who not only want to run with the likes of Jamal Crawford, Jerome Kersey, and Doug Christie, but want to bring their games to that level. Graduating seniors who have or have not signed letters of intent are 100% eligible to play in the league and are not in jeopardy of violating NCAA, NWAAC, or NAIA rules. Other high school athletes who will be seniors in 2003 will be admitted to the league if they can hang. 

But don't fool yourself, not everyone is good enough. This league is for the best players in the Puget Sound and only six teams will be made. Over 100 players' names are already entered in the draft. Are you good enough? Can you ball with the best? NBA, Former D-1's and the best high school talent in the NW; You could be part of that mix.

The first tryout is this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Klahanee Lake Community Center (located at 33701 9th St. in Federal Way). If drafted, the cost of the league is $100.  For league information, call 253-838-4606. Or, if you plan on making it to the tryouts and want to add your name to the draft list, email the FJ crew at
