We are working with the area gyms and several youth programs to put in place a socially responsible plan for practices, skills training and games as soon as our governor allows us to get back in the gyms.


We have experienced a great response from multiple groups that we have been communicating with to know that this will be a schedule that can work for the most teams possible once all of our basketball families can afford a little time and focus from the health and well being of their own families.


We appreciate everyone's understanding and support as we look to put this in place as soon as the COVID-19 related restrictions are lifted and we can begin to get back to some sense of normalcy.

-

As of July 8, 2020, we will begin to build a series of 1 day / 3 game events to be played at the NW Sports Hub in Centralia, WA. We are hosting two events in August and two events in September for clubs to take advantage of. Gym time is limited and spots will fill up fast, so register and pay online right away to secure a spot.

Separately, for our NW All Stars spring-summer teams, we are working on a solution for temporary gym time for team practices during this time when the school gyms will not be available to us.

We will update each group as soon as we have a solid solution. Thanks for your patience as we work through these challenges.

Northwest All-Stars was created in the Fall of 2010 by Denn Pretz, previously the director of Riverside Youth Basketball (girls) and out-of-season basketball for the Auburn Riverside High School (in Auburn, Washington) girls from 2003-2010, serving both groups as program director, fundraising coordinator, tournament director and basketball skills, weights, agilities, conditioning and team coach.

-

After seven years of helping to build and maintain one of the most successful girls' youth and high school programs in Washington state, Denn had decided to focus time and energy on this new venture in an effort to help boys' and girls' basketball reach even greater heights throughout the Pacific Northwest.

-

Returning for the 2019-2020 school year, with the support of the respective high school boys' and girls' coaches, Riverside Youth Basketball is back to re-establish the success of years past, to work in conjunction with a new and improved era of NW All-Stars Youth Basketball for boys and girls.

-

We are very excited to expand on what we previously had offered to the families of this Auburn, WA community and we will now invite players from around the area to participate in our program, similar to the model of a club team.

-

We are set to establish the Foundation of the Nation with our youth players receiving the kind of guidance and togetherness, training, coaching and competition that they will need to help them excel on and off the court through their high school years and beyond.

-

Also for the Spring and Summer of 2020, our NW All-Stars teams for high school aged boys and girls IN ADDITION TO a separate series of youth teams will be offered to provide local players opportunities to develop their skills in the offseason, play top teams from around the region and to compete in certified college coach viewing events in the spring and summer. 

-

Year round youth team tournaments co-hosted by NW All-Stars will be even better for 2019-2020. Youth and high school teams, club and same school, can look for Northwest All-Stars to continue to host top notch tournaments, now partnering up to co-host events throughout the Puget Sound region with organizations such as Seattle Youth Basketball, Mt. Si HS boys' basketball, Tahoma HS boys' and girls' high school and youth basketball, Auburn Riverside HS boys' and girls' high school and youth basketball, Chris Hansen from Elite Is Earned, Kelly Sopak and his Cal Stars, NW Stars, Alaska Stars and Seattle Stars organization, Seattle Select High Academic, Local Hoops Liberty Select boys' and girls' youth program, and other well known local organizations to be announced.

-

We have evaluated and addressed several aspects of our events and have made some notable improvements that teams really need to come and see for themselves. Please click on our TOURNAMENTS page for dates, details and registration information.

-

NCAA-certified viewing events set up for college coaches to attend and evaluate prospective players are another function of NW All-Stars. Girls' high school basketball players have benefited the last few years from the events co-hosted by NW All-Stars and we hope to grow the size and success of our events to provide opportunities to be seen to even more high school players than ever before.

-

Northwest All-Stars will also work with a few experienced and well known trainers, such as Chris Hyppa, to offer boys and girls the opportunity to train in individual or small group sessions to improve their basketball skills and develop their potential into tangible results.
