WEST VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL
8301 E. Buckeye
(Note: The clinic will be limited to the first 100 participants who complete registration, which means walk-ups will not be accepted either.)
This clinic is for athletes wanting to take their game to the next level by developing new skills while perfecting the basics. This year’s coaching staff will maintain Fitz’s approach, which emphasizes implementing drills into real play while keeping a low player-to-coach ratio for individual attention.
Special Note: Participants in this clinic will be eligible for selection to the Eastern Washington Elite traveling basketball program.
Registration closes November 1st.

Eastern Washington Elite was founded in 1998 and is the longest-running and most successful program in the Inland Northwest. It’s the only local grassroots program slated to play in the Under Armour Rise circuit in 2020. EWE has helped 57 players earn Division 1 scholarships to date.
All EWE coaches have high school or college coaching experience. All player costs go toward players’ expenses, tournaments and skill development – not toward coaching salaries.
Eastern Washington Elite is affiliated with the Spokane Hoopfest Association, the organization that runs the largest 3-on-3 tournament on Earth and one of the nation’s largest youth AAU leagues.
U15-U17 teams will travel to Kansas City and Atlanta during the 2020 NCAA recruiting periods and other to-be-determined sites throughout Spring and Summer 2020. All teams will play a minimum of 6 tournaments around the Northwest or nationally. Players will have the opportunity to play in front of more colleges than any other local program.
Dan Fitzgerald, a friend to all of us, and the founder of our AAU clinics in 1998, passed away on January 19, 2010. His positive impact on our community is significant. We miss you Fitz.
Fitz was the former Head Coach of the Gonzaga University Bulldogs and had long been considered one of the region’s premier teachers of basketball. He was one of the winningest coaches in Gonzaga history and was the first coach to take the Zags to the NCAA Division 1 tournament.
“Fitz was one of the best teachers of the game.”
-Ray Giacoletti, Drake University, Head Coach
