PCOM EAST    

IM Basketball Sign-ups         

Friday, January 1st   

1:00 AM- 11:00 AM   

TBD    

 

Hey guys, hope everyone is getting back into the swing of things at school! We’re going to begin signups for the next PCOM IM season- Coed IM Basketball! Its always an awesome time and a great way to get away from the school work during these long winter months. Its going to cost between $15-25 to play depending on how many people sign up and how many games we decide to play (we have to pay for outside ref fees on a per-game basis). We’ll make a final call on price this week, but in the meantime if you think you’re interested in playing signup on the google doc and get ready to show off your inner Steph Curry skills! Just a heads up, games will begin after Winter break and will conclude well before finals in February!
