K-6th Grades


About the Elementary Nisqually League (ENL):

ENL, short for Elementary Nisqually League, is an elementary basketball league for kindergarten through 6th grade students and reflects the same schools that form the Nisqually League at the JH and HS level. The 3rd-6th grade teams have the opportunity to learn and play at different levels by competing in two different divisions—blue or black.

The goal of Cougar Basketball Academy is fundamental development, Christlike character building, and preparation for high school basketball. This program will allow CCS players the opportunity to play together and learn together as they advance together through their school years. All registrations include uniform, awards, and a basketball (at end of season).


  • K-2nd: $90
  • 3rd-6th: $140


  • Kindergarten (coed)
  • 1st/2nd (boys/girls)
  • 3rd/4th (boys/girls)
  • 5th/6th (boys/girls)

Please note: Teams will need to meet a minimum of 8 rostered players to be considered valid. 


Practices will be held at the Frederickson, JH, and HS campuses (depending on age and team). Days and times are to be determined, with two practices per week. The 3rd-6th grade teams are all mixed-campus teams, so please expect to travel for practices and games. 


Games are on Saturdays only. Grades K-2 will play most, if not all, of their games at the CCS JH gym ("The Den"). Grades 3rd-6th will play a combination of home and away games. Games will be played on the following Saturdays: January 14 and 28; February 4, 11, and 25; and March 4 and 11.
