What are open runs?

Why are we doing it?

We believe that todays generation of hoopers from ages 9 through high school are missing the spirit of pickup basketball and how valuable it is for learning to love the game.  At Hoop Legends, we want to bring back that competitive spirit in a free flowing and fun format that is distinctly different than a high strung tournament weekend and more like the good ol days at the park. 

No coaching, no screaming sidelines, no silly fouls, and no pressure.  Put your name on the board by yourself, or with your friends, wait for your turn and go hoop. 

Who is it for?

Any competitive basketball player who wants to participate in a fun environment that is free from the pressure and structure of a regular weekend tournament is welcome to come play in the open runs.  

Players that have an off weekend from tournaments, recreational players, friends and family are all invited to have a good time.

What does it cost?

We charge $10/session for any player that wants to participate in the open run.  Our sessions normally run 2 hours.  For some weekends we will separate age groups based on the anticipated volume to even out the playing size and skill.  Reservation of your spot ahead of time is required to secure the pricing.  It is $15 at the door if you do not reserve and we will turn away if we are at capacity.
