In-Town Evaluation Schedule
by posted 09/19/2014

In-Town Evaluations will take place at the following times and locations on Saturday October 4th.  Please arrive at least 15 minutes in advance to check in and receive a number.  Please note that every effort has been made to avoid age and grade based conflicts with all fall sports including Soccer picture day.


3rd/4th/5th grade girls - BHS 2:30pm

6th/7th/8th grade girls - BHS 1:00pm

3rd grade boys - BMMS 2:30pm

4th grade boys - BMMS 10:00am

5th grade boys - 7:00am BHS

6th grade boys - 8:30am BHS

7th grade boys - 8:30am BMMS

8th grade boys - 7:00am BMMS


All players should attend their respective evaluation.  If they are unable to attend please contact the board member listed at the bottom of this e-mail to make alternative plans to attend with another grade.  All players should be registered prior to appearing at evaluations.  Attending evaluations without registering in advance slows the process down for everyone and limits the time available to evaluate.

Although we realize 7am is extremely early, our options were to begin very early or end very late (8:30pm+) in order to accommodate Soccer games, Soccer pictures and Fall Baseball.  We believe most would prefer to begin early and not cut into other sports.

We are still looking for a couple coaches at each level.  Please e-mail the directors below if you are interested in helping out.  Time commitment is one hour of practice on a weeknight and a one hour game on Saturday.

Travel Tryout information will be available shortly.

Thank you,

Adam Thorell

by Steve Linehan posted 08/26/2014



Brad Baker has volunteered to be
the SWISH kids coach for our first
and second graders. Brad has been
a resident of Bellingham for 17 years
and has two sons. His oldest
son, Jack, participated in the SWISH
kids program and his youngest son,
Charlie, is in the program this year.
Brad has basketball
experience playing, coaching,
and refereeing. Thank you Brad for
supporting the program!
There has been interest by other
parents to help in the SWISH kids
program. I know that Brad will be
looking for many parent volunteers
each week to help run the drills and
make it fun for the kids.
