We get a large turnout at the Open Scrimmage by players of all abilities for both our Men's and Women's divisions. Come ready to play basketball and we will help you get you on a team with players on your level. Each team created at the Open Scrimmage has 10 players. Each player is entitled to play at least half the game.
NOTE: The cost to join as an individual is $189.90. No one will be placed on a team at the Open Scrimmage who hasn't paid that night. Also, do not come to the Open Scrimmage if you already have a team. Teams that need to recruit additional players may attend but should contact the league office prior to coming at 212 877-3614. New teams formed at the Open Scrimmage will have a team ranking scrimmage later in that week to determine their level.
