What a great experience it was for the kids! The facilities were all so nice and the organization was great. So nice when you guys have the scores updated daily. As a coach I can honestly say that was the best refereed tournament we have ever played in. They were consistent both ways and always fair to both teams. I was so impressed with the job that they did. They were excellent referees! Again I just wanted to be sure to thank you as we had a great experience. It was such a neat well deserved time for the kids. Dave Austin, Stanwood 8th boys coach
Just wanted to say "Thanks" for the tourney [State 2014]. The team had fun. We went 2-2 so had some highs and had some lows. We played our best (and got a win) in the last game so got to leave on a high note. It was a great basketball experience. We will definitely play some of the qualifying tourneys so we can try to return next year. Stacy Chick, Kentlake Red 7th boys coach

WYS tourneys added as 2015 State QualifiersPosted August 5, 2014
The State Committee is excited to announce the addition of five, winter Washington Youth Sports (WYS) tourneys as official qualifiers for State 2015. Over the years, WYS has managed hundreds of quality tournaments in the greater Seattle area, including their popular MLK tournament which included 129 teams last season.
The addition of the WYS Qualifier tourneys will significantly increase the competition level at State - particularly in the Club division. We're excited to watch the battle of teams from all over Washington, with many offering first-time 'out of region' matchups!
Watch for individual WYS tourney pages on our website in September. In the meantime, for more detail or to register your team, visit the WYS website.
