The Seattle Mountaineers are a semi-professional basketball club[1] and a member of the American Basketball Association (ABA). They are currently a touring exhibition team that plays against junior and community colleges within the United States and Canada. After four years as an IBL franchise, the Mountaineers jumped to the ABA in 2010 and applied and received non-profit status. Team owner, president and head coach Don Sims is a Christian.[2] The club's basketball program provides an inclusive, Christian-based experience and teaches players the benefits of competition and understand its redemptive value.[3]

History[edit]

The Mountaineers were established in 2005 and began play in the 2006 IBL season.[4] After sitting out 2007 and 2008, the Mountaineers returned to the IBL for the 2009 season.[5]

In 2010, the Mountaineers joined the NABL for the competition's inaugural season. However, they left the league mid-season and joined the American Basketball Association.[6] They subsequently entered the ABA's Pacific Northwest Division and finished the 2009–10 season with a 16–11 record.[7]
