Select Practice starts the week of October 16/23rd Athletes who play a fall sport (i.e. football, soccer) are expected to attend fall sport practice/game when there is a scheduling conflict with basketball. When there is not a scheduling conflict fall sport players are expected to attend basketball practice. Teams practice at the CPC Bothell campus. Practice times are in the evening for 90 minutes with priority given to younger teams for earlier practice times. We do not practice on Wednesdays in an effort to support church youth group attendance.
Playing time for all games is left up to the discretion of the coaching staff. Playing time is earned on the basis of each player’s effort, attention, commitment, and ability displayed in practice. Those players with the best ability to combine these skills will receive the greatest amount of playing time. Playing time is not guaranteed and fluctuates on a game to game basis. Playing time is also subject to a player attending practice and participating with a good attitude.
LEAGUE GAMES & TOURNAMENTS
All teams participate in league play and area tournaments on weekends. Whenever possible, our program requests that Sunday mornings be blocked off from competition to support church attendance for our families. Effort is also made for CPC Select teams to play games at the CPC High School gym.
