The Seattle Storm has scheduled preseason scrimmages against two national teams in the coming weeks. Both scrimmages, though, will be closed to the public.

The Storm, which opens training camp Saturday, is set to meet the Australian National Team on May 3 at 9:30 a.m. at KeyArena. On May 8 at 2 p.m., the Storm will face the Chinese National Team in a scrimmage.

“It’s important to have a competitive training camp and part of that is to have quality ‘outside’ competition,” said Brian Agler, the coach of the WNBA team. “Both of these teams will give our team exactly that.”

The Storm’s first exhibition game will be May 11 at 1 p.m. against Los Angeles.
