Colorado Springs School To Host USA Basketball Open Court Program

  • Date:
    Sep 11, 2017

Schedule

Beginning on Sept. 18, children 6-17 years old in the Colorado Springs, Colorado, area will have the opportunity to participate in the USA Basketball Open Court program at Gold Camp Elementary School (1805 Preserve Drive, Colorado Springs, CO). 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 Gold Camp will operate from Sept. 18 through Dec. 8, including sessions on Mondays at 6:15-7:15 p.m. for children 6-9 years old, sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 6:15-7:15 p.m. for children 10-12 years old and sessions on Thursdays and Fridays from 6:15-7:15 p.m. for teens age 13-17 years old. 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.

“USA Basketball is very excited to host an Open Court program in our hometown of Colorado Springs at Gold Camp Elementary School,” said USA Basketball CEO Jim Tooley. “The Open Court program is important to us, because it gives children a free place to play basketball under the guidance of USA Basketball licensed coaches and with an emphasis on a safe and fun experience for all of the participants.”

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

All participants must submit a waiver signed by a parent or guardian before participating in their first session. Waivers are available at the program location.

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.
