+ What is "organized pick-up basketball?"
Organized pick-up basketball means that teams are formed by a facilitator, score and clock are kept by the facilitator. There is no arguing or fighting. The max time you sit out is 1 game. It's pick-up basketball, just a little more organized than a typical game at 24 Hour, LA Fitness, etc.

Intermediate - you understand the general rules of basketball and are out on the court to have fun and compete. You feel comfortable in any pick up game situation. You can't dunk.

+ How do you decide the teams?
After warming up, we meet in the center circle of the court. If less than 15 people sign up, we match up with someone around the same size and play one round of rock paper scissors. Whoever wins is on one team. Whoever loses is on the other team. If 15 people sign up, we try to divide into 3 even teams by size and skill level. The first 10 to arrive to the gym get to play first.
+ What are the rules?
10 minute games or first to 11 (1's and 2's). Next point wins if score is tied. Call your own fouls.
+ What does the Facilitator do?
They help organize the session by checking people in, forming the teams, running the clock, and keeping score.
+ What happens if I'm on the waitlist?
You will be notified if someone cancels their reservation. Then, and only then, should you come to the gym.
+ What happens if we don't get at least 10 players?
If we don't get to run full 5v5, you will receive a refund. If people still want to play 4v4 or 3v3 they are more than welcome to.
+ What is the latest time I can sign up for a session?
A minute before the session starts. However, it is advised to sign up at least 1-2 days in advance to take advantage of the promocodes!
