What is the EYBL National Program for 17 and 16 Youth?

The EYBL National Program (Program) is a collaboration of top players from Washington’s Northwest Magic program and Oregon’s FAST program. The new Program will begin in Spring 2018, and the purpose is to make a stronger presentation nationally. The Program will compete in the EYBL 2018 league circuit. Tryout invitations will be sent early February from the Directors of each program. Coach Vanessa McClendon is the director of Northwest Magic and Lisa Griffith is the director of Fast..

Players chosen for the Program are fundamentally sound. Players will be able to take their skills to the next level and test them by playing with and against other elite players. This will translate into unmeasurable development in the player’s IQ and skill level.

The EYBL National Team will play in the EYBL  “league” , allowing players gain exposure in top tier competition.


The Program schedule will allow for the same exceptional National Exposure that has always been offered by Magic. However, the exposure will be showcased within the EYBL “league”, one of the strongest leagues in the country.


Our teams are formed through an invitation only tryout. All teams will carry up to 10 players. Rosters are determined based upon a players skill level, position, basketball IQ, work ethic and experience and determined by Coach Vanessa McClendon ( Northwest Magic) and Coach Lisa Griffith (FAST)

EYBL Northwest Teams are formed through an invitation only tryout that will be comprised of players from Washington State , Oregon, primarily. Our coaches recruit and evaluate players year round.. 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.

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. This same service will be extended to our Program players
