    OPEN GYM PICKUP BASKETBALL



    Hello Brentwood Parents! Beginning this fall, we will be offering a weekly BRENTWOOD REC OPEN GYM for interested students of Swasey School. The basketball program during the 2021/2022 winter season was very successful and the Brentwood Rec Department would love to continue to grow interest in the game amongst the town's children.

    -

    During the months of September and October, we will have 4-6 nights of open gym basketball with the first night being Wednesday September 21. We will go from 6-7pm and there will be coaches present at the gym to organize drills and scrimmages. There will be a focus on skill building (dribbling, passing, defense, form shooting) during these open gyms, but the true #1 focus will be on having fun! Basketball is a great game to build teamwork and confidence amongst kids. We have the Swasey School gym available, so let's put it to good use!




    Equipment:

    • Sneakers
    • Dark & Light-colored shirts (for scrimmages)
    • Water


    Games are played at the Swasey Elementary Gym Court and volunteers are welcomed. There is no cost to sign up, but players still need to register with the Recreation Office. You can register through the Brentwood Recreation website or at the Recreation Office. Families can also register for pickup basketball at Swasey Gym on the first night of pickup basketball. 


    OPEN GYM IS ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH SAME START TIME
