Foundation Basketball is a developmentally focused program for boys and girls 5-18. We provide teams, camps and uniquely designed skills clinics.

Taking a long-term approach with our players, we focus on 4 main avenues across our basketball programs. 

  1. Relationships First - SSF's Board of Directors has set our organizations primary focus on Empowering Youth. On the court, this looks like striving to do build a program that uses sports to build youth, not the other way around.
  2. Individual Development - Our great network of trainers strives to help each athlete overachieve on an individual level.
  3. Competing as a Team - We go to great lengths to build teams that learn to win together
  4. Citizenship - Each of our athletes are invited to service events throughout the year, organized by SSF's Leadership Program.


"We love coach Karlie. Love, love, love, love her!"
-Kristi Lin, Board member and team parent

"Of the dozens of coaches I've had over the years, Keith's ability to connect and create strong relationships with his players is unique.  This, combined with his excellent understanding of the game of basketball, are what make him one of the best coaches I've played for."
-Keith Shattuck.  University of Puget Sound Shooting Guard

"My daughter will listen to anything Mike has to say! If Mike says it, it's amazing. We love coach Mike."
-Lori Trull, team parent

"When I think of ways Keith helped me prepare for college basketball, one way stands out very clearly; Keith always challenged me to not play down to my peers. Specifically on defense. Most of the time Keith was hard on me because I didn't give good overall effort. Coach Keith also helped me become a better leader for teammates. Vocally and, more importantly, by example. Both have translated well to college practices."
-Jr. Chibuogwu. Seattle University small forward

"Keith is one of the smartest and hardest working coaches you will ever find. He was an amazing influence in my life and really helped me understand how to be the best player I can be." 
-Conin Oishi. Willamette Univsersity point guard
