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... and... Women 18 plus... are both 'Masters Players'- 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 (mostly men) 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!

There are 2 products for Masters players- the main one is called Masters 'Program' (see further below) and the other is Masters league (where you join our 'House Team' as an individual and you get to play league games):

About the 'program'- see below

About the 'league'- before I explain the league, I want to be state & restate- if you are 'recreational' or on the 'slow side' of the Masters type players, you will enjoy the 'program' (described below) much more than the league. For most Masters category players, the 'program' is a MUCH better fit as the 'program' is slower, relaxed and more peaceful & recreational. So, back to discussing the 'league'- you are welcome to join 1 (or both) of these 2 teams described here:


We have TWO 'Masters Program' games- that we run for Masters 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 7:35pm (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).

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. If you want to join, text Mikal 5033804539 with something like 'Id like to join this team, how many games are left and how much would I owe?'- Mikal will immediately text back- you pay & you are in ( it is very common to join- not at the official start date).

WHY you should join this Masters Basketball Club for the FULL SEASON (vs 'single game' or 'week by week')? Answers: A) when you pay for a lot of Sundays, your payment 'forces' you to get that weekly/ongoing workout. B) knowing you are playing 'every week' 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 'single gmae option'- rarely show up, whereas the players who pay for 'full season' are forced to keep playing, forced to stay in shape- and bottom line- ten weeks later, 'full season players' are in better shape (than those who play 1game); great quote from a player one Sunday "I am glad I did full season bc if I did not, I would have skipped today and Im glad I came and got this great workout in".

Can you do just 1 game? Answer: yes you can choose 'week by week' (single game)- to do this- you will use the PicktoPlay page (on this website- you will see a link titled- 'PicktoPlay'-  scroll to find the 'Masters games' on that page).

Post script- note 1: the price we charge assumes you will 'miss 3 games out of 10 games' with being busy, out of town or injuries. If you miss a 4th game- you can ask Mikal to play an extra game on the other day (for example- you play Sundays and you miss a '4th game', feel free to ask Mikal 'can I run on Wednesday night in a free one since I missed 4games'.

Post script- note 2: Masters age players can play in non-masters games as well; text 503-380-4539 for that info about 'other games' that you can play in (restated- there are all sorts of options for 'any age' (non Masters) players.
