Join us for a morning of solid pickup games. These particular pickup games are geared for the more competitive players to promote our upcoming "Stats League" beginning in September. This new league features statisticians at every game to track individual player stats! The league begins September 7th. The season is 10 weeks long including two weeks of playoffs and an all-star game. Games are held on Saturday mornings at Hamlin Park. Full teams are encouraged, but individuals are also welcome to register. Sign up through sportsmonster.net, our Meetup page, or check out chicagostatsleague.com.
Our group continues to receive good reviews from those in attendance for being well-organized, open to new players and overall friendly and fun. Open gym is a great way to get some solid basketball action.
Depending on the number of people, we will break out into groups: 3v3 half court, 4v4 or 5v5 full court. There is a max of 20 people allowed per open gym so you will get a lot of playing time! If we do get 20, we divide into 4 teams of 5 and have a mini-tournament which is a great time.
Cost: Note that there is an incentive to RSVP and pay in advance but you are definitely welcome to just come out on the morning of the event.
RSVP and pay online = $10
RSVP and pay in person = $12
Come out that morning and pay = $15
If you want to bring a ball, that's fine but we will have balls to play.
Plan on playing two hours minutes. Depending on the number of people, we will either all play or we will break into three even squads for a round robin approach.
Anything else you need to know?
We provide all equipment.
We play for approximately 2 hours
Please RSVP and arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled start of the event. This allows enough time for you to check in, pay (if needed), meet your teammates, and warm up.
Note that many people do show up the day of - so don't be worried if you see a few people rsvp'd here. It is only $10 to rsvp online though! Once the event is sold out, no new players will be able to join.
Stretching and warming up prevents injuries. Please be sure to do this before you start playing.
Bring water or a sports drink with you.
These games are meant to be fun and enjoyable by everyone who attends. Please play safely and with sportsmanship. We can't wait to see you out there!
If you RSVP and don't show up, we'll make a note on your account. Multiple offenses may require pre-payment in order to RSVP.
Tell your friends! Please help us get the word out on this fun pick-up program.
