Meet the Coach

Nathan Campbell

He is a goals-oriented coach who thrives on building a positive culture as well as developing athletes into both great players and leaders. In his first season at Bear Creek, Nate led the Grizzlies to a Coho division title and conference playoff appearance while being recognized as coach of the year. He is excited to continue to build the program and basketball culture at Bear Creek. Off the court, Nathan likes to hike, play disc golf, and go to Sounders games. In fall 2022, Nathan took on the role of Middle School Athletics Director and is thrilled to work with our Middle School athletes and families.

Girls Basketball Quick Facts

Fees

Registration Fee: $350 + $140 for team gear (T-shirt, crewneck sweatshirt, game socks, and hat) and video services.
Additional Costs: Additional costs for basketball shoes. As well as added costs team-related meals, trips, and activities (see below).

Anticipated Levels of Play

The girls basketball program generally offers both JV and varsity teams. This is entirely dependent on the numbers at the start of the season, however. The 2022 – 2023 season will feature a varsity team, unless we are pleasantly surprised with the turnout and can form a JV squad.

Practice and Game Schedule

The girls basketball team practices Monday – Saturday from 3:45 p.m. – 5:45 p.m. or 5:45 p.m. – 7:45 p.m. on weekdays and in the morning on some Saturdays. The team generally schedules 18 – 20 regular games each season which are played in the evenings. There are some exceptions to this with some games taking place on a Saturday or possibly at an away venue right after school. Home games usually start at 5:45 p.m. and are played in the gym in the Main building. Away games sometimes involve early dismissals from class as we travel to games.

Transportation

Transportation is not needed for practices as we stay at the school for training. For away games, transportation will be provided by the school, and the expectation is that students will travel together to all away games on the bus/van. Students are not allowed to drive their own vehicles or arrange their own transportation to away games.

Uniform, Gear, and Equipment

The school provides two uniform jerseys and shorts which must be returned at the end of the season.

The registration fee includes season-specific gear items (see above). Players must purchase their own team shoes and further guidance (color, etc.) will be provided prior to the start of the season.

Retreats and Overnight Activities

During the season, it is common for the girls basketball team to organize several fun team activities including an overnight trip. This might differ from year to year, but a typical season usually involves one overnight team retreat during one of the first weekends of the official season, along with several fun evenings together (e.g., at a bowling alley, eating team meals, or at a teammate’s house hanging out). All of these costs come at the expense of the family. Team meals, bowling, and hotel expenses (for an overnight trip) are all additional expenses that players will get billed for if/when they participate.

Out of Season Activities

The girls basketball team offers out-of-season team trainings in the spring and fall. From time to time, the girls organize optional “open gym” practices that are generally run and promoted on their own. During the summer months (June and July), the team practices regularly and attends various tournaments. Bear Creek promotes and encourages girls to sign up and play basketball out of season through the different select-level and AAU clubs and organizations.
