Kraken's Home - The Lair Courts

We opened our new home in March 2018 The Lair Courts. A basketball / volleyball competition and training center, home to all club activities: team meetings, practices, strength & conditioning, private lessons, programs and club parties. The Lair Courts boasts 4 competition ready basketball courts, and 6 full size volleyball courts, an Adidas & Baden Pro Shop with on-site custom apparel decoration, the Abyss'tro Cafe, full workout facilities, and PlaySight on-demand smart video system. 

The Lair is conveniently located 20-25 minutes from about anywhere in the Greater Seattle / Puget Sound area. Easy access to the I-5, I-405 & 167 freeways, and just 3 blocks north of IKEA. We have over 140 on-site safe parking spots, with another 800 in our immediate neighborhood. There are great food choices within a few blocks, including a drive-thru Starbucks, and we are just 3 miles from the Southcenter mall.
