Select Youth Basketball Teams

MI Boys Basketball Booster Club (MIBBBC) organizes select teams for 5th through 8th graders to compete in the ETL and PEAK leagues. To be eligible to try out and play for our teams players must either live on Mercer Island or go to the school on Mercer Island through a parent employed by MISD. Players for these teams are selected through a try out process and all interested players are encouraged to participate. All try-outs are held at Mercer Island High School at the dates and times announced shortly after start of school year. Team selection is based on player skills, potential, attitude, and effort. Making a team one year does not guarantee a player will make the team the next year. In fact, historically there are always roster changes from one year to the next. All players need to attend both try-out dates for their grade level.

A brief description of the select teams is provided below.

Eastside Travel League Team (ETL)

ETL is the highest caliber of youth basketball available on the Island. ETL is the best choice for kids who are seeking more competitive play, are willing to prioritize the ETL team over other sports or teams during the basketball season, and who are willing and able to devote material time to practices, training, games, and tournaments. The ETL teams are sponsored by MIBBBC typically have 12 players on a team. Participants on an ETL team will not all get the same playing time, but they will have fun, compete, and develop solid fundamental skills. Details vary by team/coach but the ETL teams generally practice twice a week and play one home game and one away game every week during the season that lasts from December to March.

Cascade (PEAK) Team

The next highest caliber teams for each of the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade play in the PEAK league organized by the MI Boys & Girls Club. Cascade teams typically consist of 12 players who want to play competitive basketball but are also seriously pursuing interests in other sports, arts etc. during the season. These teams also require a material commitment of time, but not as much as ETL.
