Our Mission


Northwest All-Stars was created in the Fall of 2010 by Denn Pretz, previously the director of Riverside Youth Basketball (girls) and out-of-season basketball for the Auburn Riverside High School girls (in Auburn, Washington) from 2003-2010, serving both groups as program director, fundraising coordinator, tournament director and basketball skills, weights, agilities, conditioning and team coach.

After seven years of helping to build and maintain one of the most successful girls’ youth and high school programs in Washington state, Denn had decided to focus time and energy on this new venture in an effort to help boys’ and girls’ basketball reach even greater heights throughout the Pacific Northwest.

We are set to establish the Foundation of the Nation with our youth players receiving the kind of guidance and togetherness, training, coaching and competition that they will need to help them excel on and off the court through their high school years and beyond.
