Estrella Foothills High School Selected To Host USA Basketball Open Court Program

  • Date:
    Jul 31, 2017

Beginning on Aug. 13, children 6-17 years old in the Phoenix area will have the opportunity to participate in the USA Basketball Open Court program at Estrella Foothills High School. The goal of USA Basketball Open Courts, presented by Nike, is to provide children a safe and fun environment in which to play basketball.

The sessions at Estrella Foothills High School will operate from 2-7 p.m. every Sunday from Aug. 13 through October 29. Open Court sessions are free to the community and open to children of all ability levels.

The complete schedule and more information can be found at usab.com/opencourt.

As one of USA Basketball’s youth development initiatives, the Open Court program connects players to local facilities, and the free-play environment allows children the opportunity to enjoy basketball while earning prizes for participation. 

The program encourages free-play, inclusion, development and fun through basketball stations and games and is 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.
