Men's Pick-up basketball in Hunters Point, Long Island City. We play every Monday and Wednesday evening that public schools are open from 7pm-8:45pm at the High School on Center Boulevard (aka Academy of Careers for Television and Film, 1-50 51st Avenue, Long Island City NY). The cost is $10 per session, and you only play when you want - you do not have to commit to the season or a specific day. ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// But you must RSVP and pay in advance via Meetup.com. ONCE YOU RSVP TO A SESSION NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS WILL BE OFFERED. Please be 100% sure that you can attend before committing to that session. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
FOR INSURANCE PURPOSES WE NEED TO RECEIVE A WAIVER FROM PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS PRIOR TO THEIR BEING ADMITTED TO THIS MEETUP GROUP. In addition, we charge a one-time fee of $5 to join this meetup group before we absorb the upfront cost of obtaining additional insurance (basically this deters those just interested in browsing). If you have an interest in joining us, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. This email address is also the one to use when paying us the $5 initiation fee and can be done through quikpay/zelle or venmo.
The waiver is available at LICYSL.org - click on the "Men's Basketball" tab, do not use the Youth waiver on the home page. Print your name in the top field and sign and date on BOTH lines at the bottom, then scan it back to me in a pdf (I recommend the free CamScanner app on your phone if you don't currently have scanning capabilities - this allows you to do it all thru your phone's camera)
We require a new signed waiver at the beginning of every season, otherwise you will be culled from the group and be required to rejoin anew.
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// It is a regulation sized court, but we divide it into two full-court games simultaneously with each playing 4x4 on the side baskets. We will break up the teams evenly at the outset, after which it's the luck of the draw based on who's sitting and who shoots in from the losing team. There will be a sign-up list for each court, and players from the losing team must shoot foul shots to play next, not be chosen by those already sitting. //////////////////////////////////////////////////// Please have a fun, positive, and supportive attitude. No fighting, rough playing, or screaming allowed. You will immediately be asked to leave the gym. No food or alcoholic beverages allowed into the school. Save it for after the game. //////////////////////////// From Grand Central Station it's 3 minutes/1 stop on 7 Train. Take 7 train to Vernon Jackson. Walk straight back towards the River to Center Blvd(in the direction of the city).
