So You Think You Can Play?


The Adelaide 36ers are committed to developing strong community relationships with South Australian schools. As one of the initiatives of this commitment the Adelaide 36ers are offering the ‘So You Think You Can Play?’ challenge free to Primary Schools in South Australia.

Is your school up to the ‘So You Think You Can Play?’ challenge?

The challenge will see our Adelaide 36ers play against your school’s designated basketball team in an exhibition game at your school. Your school’s basketball team that plays could be selected in a variety of ways. It could be the school’s actual basketball team, athletics or sports team or it could be made up of students that deserve a reward for attendance, exemplary behaviour or students who are struggling to connect in the school environment. We leave the selection of this team to you and the contact teacher(s); however we do recommend that students be in the upper primary grades of year six and seven, and that the team have a maximum of 15 players.

The ‘So You Think You Can Play?’ challenge game at your school will carry all the hype and events of a traditional Adelaide 36ers game-day event. This includes player introductions, crowd chants, competitions and when available, guest appearances by the 36ers mascot Murray Magpie and Adelaide Lightning players. We will also provide a referee and MC for the game.

To create extra hype and atmosphere for the game we ask that you invite all of your students, teachers and staff to the basketball court as spectators and encourage any students to bring posters. Throughout the game we will have a special prize for the student with the best poster. We will also reward all members of your school with a free ticket to a 36ers home game and a ‘So You Think You Can Play?’ booklet.

If you would like to enquire about your school’s participation in the ‘So You Think You Can Play?‘ challenge, please contact Reece Turner via email at: reece@adelaide36ers.com
