Welcome to Northwest Magic National College Viewing Registrations.  See tournament details at bottom of page 

Our national program is for players from 7th-12th grade. We will have 2-3 national college viewing travel teams at most during one season ranging from 14U-17U. This program is demanding, rigorous and highly competitive. Our coaches evaluate and target players on a year round basis at tournaments, camps and school games. Rosters start forming during Fall Evaluations/Tryouts followed by Tryout invitations that will go out in  January of each year to fill open spots.  

Your player will never be pushed or learn more than they will in their time as a part of the NW Magic Blue Star Family! It starts at the top and our coaches set the standard with their knowledge, experience and ability to coach elite players. We operate like a college program with rigorous, challenging training that prepare the players for national/collegiate level competition. Our goal is to not only get your player a college scholarship but put them in position to be an impact player at the college level!

The NW Magic Blue Star  National Teams only compete in the elite national college viewing tournaments. Our success as a program and being a Blue Star Travel Team ensures we are always competing at the highest divisions in these tournaments. This ensures maximum exposure to top competition and college coaches. 

Everything we do is about putting players in the best position to compete for college scholarships. Our teams play a national tournament schedule which provides them maximum exposure to college coaches and recruiters from coast to coast. It also ensures that our teams play against top competition. Basketball is our business and you are making an investment by participating with our program. We take this seriously and guarantee your player will be on a national platform.

Coaches evaluate and target players on a year round basis at tournaments, camps and school games. Rosters start forming during Fall Evaluations/Tryouts followed by Tryout invitations that will go out in  January of each year to fill open spots. We want to build the most competitive teams possible through our tryout process while ensuring players are properly placed to receive maximum exposure on a national platform. All teams will carry 8-10 players and practices will be held on one week day and one weekend day.   Rosters are determined based upon a players skill level, position, basketball IQ, work ethic and experience.

NW Magic Blue Star  National Teams are formed through an invitation only tryout that will be comprised of players from Arizona or any of its bordering states. Our coaches recruit and evaluate players year round through various tournaments, camps and middle/high school games. We target players that are highly competitive and advanced for their age group. Families will receive an information packet at a certain point in time inviting their player(s) and sharing information pertaining to the program. The families can then choose whether to accept or decline the tryout invitation.

We have successfully assisted numerous players in their recruiting process over the years. Our program is well respected with college coaches nationwide and we work hard to build on that reputation and grow those relationships each year. We are a phone call away from having a serious conversation with programs at every collegiate level through our affiliation with Blue Star. Our players take full advantage of that networking power while a NW Magic Blue Star member.
