Individuals - you are probably wondering
how you can join on a team?
Individuals- you are welcome to play in
this adult basketball league- We run leagues for each day of
the week. You are able to play in ANY of those days
The information on this page- applies to both men and women.
We do NOT have teams (comprised of individuals) that you can
join; instead we use a program we created called
With Pick-to-Play you can play
in a league game ANY day you want to play- 360 days per year.
Once you join up with PicktoPlay, you are going to be put on
a team that plays against
regular league teams in the PortlandBasketball.com Adult
basketball league is the worlds largest adult basketball
league- we run leagues for each day of the week.
PicktoPlay enters teams into
this league- every one of those nights - this means you can
play up to 7x in a week.
With PicktoPlay, you can even choose from a
west-side or an east-side game (click on PicktoPlay to see
the various game options available to you).
You will visit the PicktoPlay webpage- and you will see 30
games options over the next 7 days; you can pick (to play)
in ANY of those 30 games.
The unique thing about PicktoPlay is that you sign up and
pay- for just one game. Restated- you are only committed to
one game at a time.
This is the point where the reader says- "well I
want to play with the same guys each week"- but
what we need to tell you is two things: 1) if you sign up
for the single game- a certain game- and you like the
players you play with- sign up again, you will 'notice' that
similar players sign up for certain games so in that sense
its almost the same players per game. 2) the typical
picktoplay- player- after doing about 30 games starts to
become friends with like minded players and often they will
break off and form a team to enter the league (and those
players often continue playing in PicktoPlay as well as the
team they formed). So if being on a team- with the same
players each week is important to you, join PicktoPlay, do
30 games or so- and it usually happens. You see, PicktoPlay
is 6 players- but typically of your 5 teammates for that
game- 3 of them are captains or co-captains on real-teams so
you can get picked up on a team that way too.
Players love PicktoPlay because the roster size is 6
players (meaning you have only 1 substitute total= you will get a lot of
Pick to Play games are 50 minutes in length
with 2 referees against regular real teams in the league.
You will notice another option is the 'zero referee game'-
its a game- PicktoPlay puts teams together for that too,
those games are 54 minutes (cheaper in

TO JOIN- for your very FIRST GAME, here are the
steps to join this program: 1) you will go to the PicktoPlay
page and find a game that you want to sign up for, then 2)
you will go to
the main-page of PortlandBasketball.com and click 'Make
Payment' and pay for that game, then 3) text 503-597-8819 with
your name and a note that 'I just paid', then someone from
our office will do this for you 4)
our league staff Mikal or Jen will go in and make your name
eligible to enter
directly into the PicktoPlay page moving forward (put your
name in the game slot and hit 'submit'), finally 5) once we
text you back saying 'you are set' you will enter your
name directly into any game spot.
For your SECOND GAME and beyond-
you will do none of above; for
your second game forward - you will simply put
your name in the PicktoPlay web page game slot (and our office will
charge your CREDIT CARD on game day). Restated for the 2nd
game forward- all you do is put your name in a game slot and
hit submit (easy).
RULE FOR WHEN YOU
PLAY- as an individual playing on our
PicktoPlay teams we have one important rule:you can dribble a lot
OR you can shoot a
lot... but where we draw the line is this- you cannot do
BOTH (restated- you are not
allowed to be both the extreme
dribbler AND the extreme shooter). Restated yet one more
time- with Pick-to-Play - if you dribble up the entire
court, you will need to pass the ball to a shooter because
it is not fun/normal/acceptable to both dribble the entire
court AND end up being the same
person to shoot the ball.
