The first occurrence when a child demonstrates behavior that is detrimental to the game or is unsportsmanlike, as determined in NYC Pick Up Sports sole discretion, will be asked to sit out for the remainder of that game. If the child displays poor behavior a second time, as determined in NYC Pick Up Sports sole discretion, the child will not be allowed back for the duration of the season. These judgments will be made at the sole discretion of the referees and game managers. In either event, there will be no refund if a child is asked not to return.

Detrimental behavior is defined to include, without limitation, the following:

(i)             Bullying behavior, such as teasing, name calling or making fun of someone;

(ii)            Foul Language;

(iii)           Flagrant game-rule violation; and

(iv)          Ignoring officials, referees, game managers or any other agent of NYC Pick Up Sports










In our Pickup format Basketball 6 teams of 4 kids per team will be selected by our trained coaches before each session. There will be two games occurring at a time on a ten-minute running clock to ensure that no team has to wait long periods of time without playing and that each player is given appropriate time to rest between 20 minute bursts of nonstop action.

The concept of pickup allows for the participants to socialize with students from other schools in a more relaxed environment than traditional sports leagues. Players are not locked into or committed to a single team and are able to enjoy the sport without the pressure of showing up every week. The coaches are there to facilitate good game flow and give tips when they deem appropriate, not scold any member of a team or create an ultra-competitive environment.

This is a great opportunity for a Basketball player of any skill level to gain more experience playing the sport in a relaxed environment and make new friends.
