Kennewick High School In Washington To Host USA Basketball Open Court

  • Date:
    Feb 1, 2018

Beginning on March 5, children who are 6-17 years old in Kennewick, Washington, will have the opportunity to participate for free in a USA Basketball Open Court – presented by Nike – at Kennewick High School.

USA Basketball Open Court provides children a safe and fun environment in which to play basketball. Children 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 USA Basketball Open Court at Kennewick High School will operate sessions for 6-9 year olds from 5-6 p.m. (PDT) and for 13-17 year olds from 6-8 p.m. on most Tuesdays and Thursdays from March 6 through April 19. Sessions for 10-12 year olds will run from 5-7 p.m. mostly on Mondays and Wednesdays from March 5 through April 19.

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

As one of USA Basketball’s youth development initiatives, 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.
