USA Basketball Open Court Program Expanded In 2017

  • Date:
    Apr 13, 2017

With the goal of providing children a safe and fun environment in which to play basketball, USA Basketball will operate 12 Open Court programs in 2017 throughout the United States.

USA Basketball Open Court, presented by Nike, connects players to local facilities. The free-play basketball environment allows children ages 6-17 years old the opportunity to enjoy basketball while earning prizes for their participation. Open Court program sessions are free to the community and open to children of all ability levels. 

USA Basketball Open Court sites have been finalized at nine locations. Programs have begun at Rising Sun High School in North East, Maryland, at O’Farrell Charter School in San Diego, California, and at Lena Park Community Center in Dorchester, Massachusetts.

Open Court will begin in April at the Emily K. Center in Durham, North Carolina, and in May at the Cathy Hensel Community Center in Montbello, California.

In June, Open Courts will begin at the R.D. Evans Community Center in Fort Worth, Texas; at Hazelwood West High School in Hazelwood, Missouri; at Breakthrough Urban Ministries in Chicago; and at Bethpage High School in Bethpage, New York.

Three additional locations will be finalized in the coming weeks.

Complete schedules and more information can be found at usab.com/opencourt.

Each participating facility conducts 12 sessions that are broken down into one- or two-hour time blocks for 6-9 year olds, 10-12 year olds and 13-17 year olds. All participants must submit a waiver signed by a parent or guardian before participating in their first session. Waivers are available at each program location.

The purpose of the sessions is to encourage free-play, inclusion, development and fun through basketball stations and games. Sessions are designed to emphasize the concept of playground basketball. Each Open Court program is supervised by USA Basketball licensed coaches.

Open Court participants earn points by attending sessions. Also, bonus points may be earned when a player brings a friend, comes to consecutive sessions, has perfect attendance or makes a social post about their experience. At the end of the 12 sessions, participants can trade in points earned for custom USA Basketball Youth Development and Nike prizes. Every participant will have the opportunity to earn at least one prize through their involvement in Open Court. The breakdown of how to earn points can be found online, as can the available prizes.

Organizations may apply to run a USA Basketball Open Court program. Guidelines and requirements can be found at: usab.com/youth/open-court-program/host-an-open-court-program.aspx.
