Host an Open Court Program

Join in our initiative to open doors for youth to enjoy basketball in an open play setting. If you have a facility and meet the below requirements, you could be our next Open Court program location! Review the guidelines for running an Open Court program and apply at http://usab.site-ym.com/event/OpenCourt if you think Open Court would be a good fit for your facility.

All applications will be reviewed against the Open Court criteria listed below. Submitted applications will be placed on a wait list for 2018 programs and/or considered for the 2019 Open Court season.

  • Dedicated area for check-in

  • Must be open for 12 sessions throughout the program

    • E.g. once a week for 12 weeks, twice a week for 6 weeks

    • 12 sessions do not need to fall on consecutive weeks (can allow for breaks during the program as long as in totality program lasts 12 sessions)

    • 1-hour time slot: 6-9 year olds

    • 2-hour time slot: 10-12 year olds
