  1. I am thinking of entering the basketball skills at the MSG and was wondering when we can warm up for the contests?
    Is the morning available to shoot? Also, do you have any rules on the hot shot competition?
    Thank you,
    Dave

    • David;

      – Paying Members of the Rec Ctr (daily, monthly, etc.) may practice anytime gym floor is open
      – Non-Member MSG Competitors may practice beginning at noon on the day of competition.

      Hot Shot:
      – Varied points for made shots from various identified marks on the floor: Layups, Free Throw, 3-Point, etc
      – May not shoot twice in a row from the same spot unless you miss the first shot.

      Hope that helps;
      Gary
