Pick-Up Basketball Games

From 6:00-8:00 p.m. on Mondays, Gates Field House is open for full court pick-up basketball games. It is open to full-time students and Coors Fitness Center members.

Players must check-in at the Coors Fitness Center front desk, then sign-up using the whiteboard in Gates Field House to be added to the player list.

How to Play

  • Games are “first-come, first-serve” basis.
  • The winning team stays on court until they lose. When the game ends, the next five players on the sign-up list are up.
  • Games are played to 11, win by two points.
    • Baskets made in front of the three-point arc = 1 point
    • Baskets made behind the three-point arc = 2 points
  • Violations are called by players and result in a side-out. No free throws are taken, and disputes are settled by a “shoot off.”
  • Shirts and soft-soled shoes must be worn at all times.
  • No fighting, taunting or aggressive play is allowed. Violation of this policy can result in removal from the games.
