**To get on the invite list you must be a COMPETITIVE varsity level player/college recruit. To be notified about the next event, please send us a message and include your name and the school/club you compete for.
No drills. No plays. No coaching. Just an open gym and an opportunity for high-level competitive High School Girls and prospective college recruits to play pick-up basketball for FREE with no pressure from coaches.
Sessions are managed exclusively by the players. They decided the scores they played to, they picked teams, they called their own fouls and added their own stipulations (prove the last bucket with a free throw). We, as adults, simply opened the gym doors, flipped on the lights and sat back to enjoy watching some high-quality basketball. Simple as that.
In today's basketball scene, players are constantly managed by coaches or solicited for something every time they step onto the floor. What happened to good old fashioned pick-up? Where you just play and have to win to stay on the court. This competitive aspect of the game is something that is sorely missing in organized play these days.
In regards to high school coaches, club coaches/directors, and trainers that might have some concerns or feel uneasy about their players coming out to play, no need to worry. There is no solicitation of any kind allowed at these open gym events as we want to provide a neutral, competitive environment where players can JUST PLAY.
Below is a list of the High School Girls that attended the open gym session on Friday, October 4, 2019:
