  • Date:
    Jan 10, 2018

USA Basketball today announced J.A. Fair High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, as the next location for USA Basketball Open Court – presented by Nike – which provides children ages 6-17 years old a safe and fun environment in which to play basketball.

Participants choose how to engage in the sport through free play, skill games, five-on-five, 3x3 and station options. Sessions are free to the community and open to children of all ability levels.

The sessions at J.A. Fair High School will operate on most Saturdays and Sundays from Jan. 13 through March 4, including sessions at 3-4 p.m. for 6-9 year olds, 4-6 p.m. for 10-12 year olds and 6-8 p.m. for 13-17 year olds.

The complete schedule for J.A. Fair High School is available online, and more information about Open Court can be found at usab.com/youth/open-court-program.

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

Each Open Court program is supervised by USA Basketball licensed coaches.

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.

Open Court participants earn points by attending sessions. Also, bonus points may be earned when a player brings a friend, 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 gear. The breakdown of how to earn points can be found online, as can the available prizes.
