What is Magic’s Blue Star National Program?

BLUE STAR NATIONAL PROGRAM
Our Blue Star national program is for players from 7th-12th grade. We will have 3-5 national teams at most during one season ranging from 7th-12th grade. This program is demanding, rigorous and highly competitive. Our coaches evaluate and target players on a year round basis at tournaments, camps and school games. Tryout invitations will be sent out in January of each year from our national program director, Coach Vanessa.

PLAYER DEVELOPMENT
Your player will be pushed and learn so much during the time with the NW Magic Family! It starts at the top and our coaches set the standard with their knowledge, experience and ability to coach elite players. We operate like a college program with rigorous, challenging training that prepare the players for national/collegiate level competition. Our goal is to not only get your player a college scholarship but put them in position to be an impact player at the college level!

TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE
The Blue Star National Teams only compete in the elite national college viewing tournaments. Our success as a program and being a Blue Star Travel Team ensures we are always competing at the highest divisions in these tournaments. This ensures maximum exposure to top competition and college coaches. We will share our confirmed tournament schedule with the invited players and their families in the invitation packet that will be sent out in January.

NATIONAL EXPOSURE
Everything we do is about putting players in the best position to compete for college scholarships. Our teams play a national tournament schedule which provides them maximum exposure to college coaches and recruiters from coast to coast. It also ensures that our teams play against top competition. Basketball is our business and you are making an investment by participating with our program. We take this seriously and guarantee your player will be on a national platform.

TEAM ROSTERS
Our teams are formed through our invitation only tryout. We want to build the most competitive teams possible through our tryout process while ensuring players are properly placed to receive maximum exposure on a national platform. All teams will carry 8-10 players and practices will be held on week days and weekends throughout the season. Rosters are determined based upon a players skill level, position, basketball IQ, work ethic and experience.

TRYOUT/SELECTION PROCESS
Blue Star National Teams are formed through an invitation only tryout that will be comprised of players from Washington State or any of its bordering states. Our coaches recruit and evaluate players year round through various tournaments, camps and middle/high school games. We target players that are highly competitive and advanced for their age group. Families will receive an information packet at a certain point in time inviting their player(s) and sharing information pertaining to the program. The families can then choose whether to accept or decline the tryout invitation.

RECRUITING ASSISTANCE
We have successfully assisted numerous players in their recruiting process over the years. Our program is well respected with college coaches nationwide and we work hard to build on that reputation and grow those relationships each year. We are a phone call away from having a serious conversation with programs at every collegiate level through our affiliation with Blue Star. Our players take full advantage of that networking power while a NW Magic Blue Star member.
