THURSDAY NIGHT PICKUP BASKETBALL IS BACK!
NOTE - Players that RSVP will have priority on the court over those that choose to simply show up and play. However, game time is 6:45 so any RSVPs still missing at that time will lose their spots.
We play pick-up every Tuesday night at St. Vincent Community Center (Thursday for the next two weeks). The group always gets good reviews from those in attendance for being solid play, being open to new players and overall friendly and fun. Open gym is a great way to get some solid basketball action. Skill level is drawing more intermediate level players. However, all are welcome.
Depending on the number of people, we will break out into groups 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.
Note that there is an incentive to RSVP and pay in advance but you are definitely welcome to just come out that night.
RSVP and pay online = $8
RSVP and pay in person = $9
Come out that night and pay = $10
If you want to bring a ball, that's fine but we will have balls to play.
Plan on playing 90 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?
STV is located just off I170 and the Rock Road - plenty of free parking.
We provide all equipment. When we can we divide games up by skill level (beginner through advanced).
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 night of - so don't be worried if you see a few people rsvp'd here. It is only $8 to rsvp online though! Once the event is sold out, no new players will be able to join.
RSVP deadline is 4:00 pm day of event. After that time, you can still come out at the drop-in rate.
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.
