We Are Elite
Our Clark Elite basketball program places players on teams based on their skill level which will be evaluated during tryouts. Teams will be formed in an A or B level format. Every Clark Elite team will practice in Vancouver at the Clark County Family YMCA or at a nearby Vancouver or Evergreen School District Gym and will participate in our associations competitive Hoop League in Beaverton. Some of our top teams will participate in outside tournaments in addition to league play. We will provide a paid coach for every team, uniforms, two 90-minute practices per week, and each team will participate in at least 12 games. All league and tournament games follow high school rules and will be officiated by two refs.
Each team will be built with a ten player max. We want players to get quality playing time during league games. If we are unable to place your child on a team you will be issued a refund minus the $40 tryout fee. If a player cannot attend at least one of the tryouts they will not be placed on a team unless a special request has been put in by one of our Clark Elite coaches. Not all players will be placed—this is a competitive basketball program. Playing time is not guaranteed, however our coaches want to help develop players and provide game experience as often as they can.
