Voluntary summer basketball begins Wednesday, May 30 with a 2-day tryout to determine the summer league teams. All interested participants should plan on attending. Tryouts will be in the gym on 5/30 and 5/31 from 3:15-5:15. This will be to determine the two teams (varsity and JV) that will participate in the Renton Summer League and other potential tournaments. Please know that standing on a summer league team does not guarantee a spot in the program when the season begins in November.
If players are not selected to the summer teams they are still encouraged to tryout for the season when there are additional spots available. Our basketball program offers three levels of play; varsity, junior varsity and c-team. Cuts may be made based on the number of interested participants.
Games schedules will be posted online through NPSLathletics.org. Practice schedules will be released to the team when available.

Don Hoffman graduated from Kennedy Catholic in 1983 and went on to earn a BA in Business Finance from the University of Puget Sound in 1987. Don started his professional career at the Boeing Company. After several years with Boeing he realized his true calling was to work with kids at the high school level. Don returned to college at Seattle University (’92) earning a Master’s Degree in Teaching.
As an athlete, he had a two year stint playing football at Wenatchee Valley College which was the #2 nationally ranked Junior College team in 1984.

For Don, the best part about coaching at Kennedy Catholic are the relationships developed with players and other coaches alike. The wins and losses are a big part of the game but being able to work with the great kids at Kennedy Catholic provides him with drive and motivation. Lancers have great attitudes, are willing to work hard and bleed Red, White and Blue.
