Seattle’s Jesuit College Prep School Since 1891

Girls' Basketball


Program Philosophy

It is our belief that the girls basketball program at Seattle Prep is an extension of the school’s mission “that each person is sacred and that we are created to serve others in community”. Everything that our program stands for and practices - from drills to team retreats and service to how players conduct themselves in the classroom - should flow from this belief that the student-athletes are part of something bigger than themselves. The great thing about a Jesuit school is that the "something bigger than themselves" is already defined. In short, the student-athletes who play basketball at Seattle Prep are aiming to become “women for others”.

Of course, the day-to-day basketball is exciting as well. Players will be prepared, confident and relentless. They will do this because the love each other, they love the game and they love to compete. Because ultimately love wins. By choosing love (the sport, the drill, our teammates, the journey), we can become the best version of ourselves on the court and in life.

Meet the Coach

Brian Elsner graduated from Seattle Prep in 1997 and Santa Clara University in 2001. He joined the boys' basketball coaching staff at Seattle Prep as an assistant in 2001 and served the last ten years as the Associate Head Coach. During his time coaching with the boys, the Panthers advanced to the State tournament ten different times, including a Metro championship in 2005, a Sea-King District championship in 2006 and 2012 and a State championship in 2006.

Coach Elsner has a wonderful family with his wife Dana and two boys, Lincoln (8) and Felix (4).

Tryout/Rosters

Practices on Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be held at PSBL Sodo due to the school auction using McHugh Gym. (PSBL Sodo is at 1644 Occidental Ave S Seattle, WA 98134 - Entrance to gym is on Occidental between Edgar Martinez and Massachusetts. Look for a large "4" on building and PURPLE Door and deck. 4 Doors south of Henry's Tavern).

Players will travel on the bus to the practices and will return to Seattle Prep on the bus. If a player would like to be picked up from the gym, an email needs to be sent to belsner@seaprep.org indicating this.

(Note: Thursday is a home Seahawks game so it will be quite busy in the area).
