MASTERS 40+ (this page- this info- is relevant to WOMEN of all ages and men 40+)

What is a Masters Player?

Men age 40 plus

&

Women 18 plus - we have found that women players play very similar to over 40 Men- in that they typically play smart- good basketball with good ball movement- and both play below the rim and less fast than our typical leagues. Ever since we 'added' women to 'Masters players category' we have found a home for both and the fit has been perfect. Restated, the program you will read about below is for Men (40+) and Women (18+) and the fit/ball movement/pace of the game is very unique, its a wonderful game. Come join us!

Here is what we do NOT do for Masters players:

After 27 years of desparately trying to form a Masters League and even having 200 teams to pull from, 'Masters league' does NOT work. We have tried- many times and we are are a very organized huge league... So- lets talk about the 1 thing we WILL do -

What we do: we run 2 MASTERS games every Sunday (51 Sundays/year) and 1 MASTERS game on Wednesday

We have 2 GAMES that we run for Masters age players that occur on Sundays at 11:30am and 12:25pm at Columbia Christian School - 9100 East Burnside (Portland). We also run ONE game on Wednesdays 7:40pm same location. The game has a supervisor- scoreboard- teams wearing black/white jerseys- but it is really 14 players showing up- getting divided onto 2 team and playing a game. This is a league style game but it is more of a CLUB of 14 players- playing at the same time and place every Sunday. The point of this game/program is to play at a Masters pace (a slower game- a smart game). We run 2 of these games back to back (some players sign up & pay to play in both games).

Think of this- as a 14 person basketball CLUB that shows up same time, same place every Sunday- to play a game designed for 'Masters' players.

How to participate: you can join full season (text Mikal 503-380-4539 for cost/# of games remaining) or join 'week by week'

WHY you should join this Masters Basketball Club FULL SEASON (vs week by week)? Answers: 1) when you pay for a number of Sundays, your payment 'forces' you to get that weekly/ongoing workout- and your body and your health benefit. 2) 'knowing that you have a game every Sunday' gives you a reason to eat better and gives you incentive to get your other workouts in. You do have the option of doing this 'week by week' for $15 but we do not encourage this- and the players who do this- rarely show up, whereas paying 'full season' forces you to get in there more often- and that is why you are here reading this- to get in shape.

How to participate: Text Mikal at 503-380-4539 & Mikal will respond with how many Sundays (or Wednesdays) you will get and what you need to pay. The reason you do not see a 'set' fee (on this webpage)- is depending on the week you reach out to us- there might be XX number of Sundays (or Wednesdays) left in any given session; restated- text Mikal 503-380-4539 and Mikal will individualize ('pro rate') a price for you (based on # of weeks left). This program is year around- non stop with 7 Sunday sessions... when one session ends, the next session resumes 7days later (no breaks in play). IF you choose 'week by week' option- you will use the PicktoPlay page to do so (on this website- you will see a link titled 'PicktoPlay'.

Side note: Masters age players can play in non-masters games as well; text 503-380-4539 for that info about 'other games' (on other days to choose from).
