You’ll experience walking through an arena tunnel from the locker room to the court and feel the excitement players feel as you hear to the Coach’s pre-game instructions. In the tunnel, you’ll experience larger-than-life graphics of players and coaches and view projected moving images of college fans, cheerleaders, bands, coaches and players.
Center Court is a full basketball court with six goals, a score board and shot clocks. The court is designated for free play unless otherwise indicated. Here you can practice your skills, shoot baskets or participate in a pick-up game or clinic. Center Court hosts special events such as dinners, receptions, basketball related events or corporate events.
Bring your children to play in the Kids’ Court. Children ages 2-9 can play basketball with equipment geared just for them. At Big Shot Ball, kids try to stuff a very oversized, lightweight basketball into an oversized, low hanging goal. At Nothing But Net, kids shoot basketballs, practice their ball-handling skills, dunk like the big guys, and play games using backboards positioned at low heights.
Are you or someone you know good at commentating those heated games from the couch? Now you have a chance to role-play sports announcing, color commentary and post-game wrap up from a sports desk modeled after the ESPNU desk! You’ll get to record your performance while watching the activity take place. You can also view the action on an overhead monitor above the sports desk.
Who’s the best 3-point shooter? Hustle to make as many 3-point shots as possible from different positions around the arc before the clock runs out. Visitors realize how difficult it is to make 3-pointers, especially under pressure. Each time a basket is made, the score display adds three points.
See if you’ve got handles like the pros! Follow a guided video challenge and see how you match up. Microsoft Kinect captures you in action as you rock the hardwood with killer crossovers and smooth skills. Get inspired by watching how superstar Steph Curry handles the rock.
