Introduction Tournament 14th of September

September 13, 2015 Algemeen by USBF Bestuur

Dear Members, In this mail you’ll receive some information about the second Monday, tomorrow, and the start of the competitions. --INTRODUCTION TOURNAMENT-- Last Monday, we had the introduction tournament of this season. We were glad that we saw a lot of new faces and we hope everybody enjoyed him/herself and will stick around this season. Furthermore we hope that you have scouted players and have been talking to them about forming a team for the coming season. For the ones that missed this, we hope to see you tomorrow, 14th of September. This day will be crucial for joining a team, with whom you’ll play this season. --COMPETITION-- The new competition will start on Monday the 21st. There are three levels at USBF, of which there only will be a training for the beginner’s class. However players of mid class and pro class are welcome to join the training. The teams in mid and pro class will start their internal competition. There is room for six teams in both competitions. After round of 5 Mondays, the first two teams of mid and the last two teams of Pro will play a promotion/demotion game for a place in the high league. The beginners will form their own team after the training. They will start their own competition as well. The court will be open at 19.00 every Monday, after which the beginner’s training and the first games will start at approximately 19.15. The match schedule will be posted every week on the USBF website. --MONDAY THE 14TH OF SEPTEMBER-- The second day will start on Monday the 14th of September. The individual and team registrations will be on this day. The team with whom you register will be the team with whom you’ll play your competition games. The courts will be open at 19.00, as will the team registrations. I will put the individual registration form in the appendix, to avoid long lines on the day. I’d like to point out that there will only be room for 6 teams. If you already have a team with who you would like to register, we’d like to see a team list at 19.00. Don’t forget to put the team name on top! If you haven’t found a team yet, but you have found a due with whom you will be playing the games, just register as a duo or triplet, and we’ll try to find a team for you. We hope that the first matches could start at 19.30. But be on time as the registration can take longer to complete. at 20.35 you can tell us if you want to change teams and the final team registration will take place. The next matches will start at approximately 21.00 and the day ends at approx. 22.00. Normally the day ends at 22.30, but due the competition start up, it will end a little bit earlier. --REGISTRATIONS-- We have already mentioned it in the last mail, but I like stress it in this mail. Registration is finalized with a registration form handed in to us and a registration and payment at the olympus desk. Everybody is obliged to purchase an Olympas/club’s card, and tell the desk it is for USBF. Furthermore the HKU-/PhD-/non-UU and non-HU students will be placed on a waiting list till further notice. after the registrations of last Monday, the first people on the waiting list will be mailed an acceptance notice. If you haven’t received a mail yet, you’ll receive an acceptance mail on Sunday the 20th of September, after which the main part of the registration will be complete. If it isn’t an acceptance mail, it will be an mail with further information on the waiting list and further instructions. --INSPECTION OLYMPAS AND REGISTRATION-- Monday the 21st of September we’ll be starting an inspection of your registrations. On this day the table will be at the entrance to the middle court. The other doors will be closed. You’re requested to check your information and to confirm it’s correct, before you’re allowed to enter the court. Furthermore, an inspection will be held for your purchase of the Olympas/member’s card. If you fail to comply, you have two weeks to get everything in order.

SSV Registration and Opening Drinks

September 08, 2015 Algemeen by USBF Bestuur

Dear Members, --THE NEW OLYMPAS-- Every student’s sport’s club (SSV) will be internalized by the USS Mesa Cosa (the sports council for Utrecht’s students sports). This means that every member is obliged to procure an Olympas. Members of category A (the student’s of UU and HU) will be charged €125,-. With this pas you’ll be able to play at USBF. Furthermore you will have unlimited and free access to the facilities of Olympos (think about fitness, or renting/reserving a tennis-/squash-/basketballcourt). Members of category B and C (UU/HU employees or non-students/employees) can purchase a club’s card. The price of this club’s card will be €125,- as well, except this card won’t contain the same privileges as the Olympas provides for students. --WAITING LIST NON-STUDENTS-- Because of the internalization, every SSV has to comply to the 80/20 rule. This means that at least 80% of the members of an SSV has to be a student registered at the UU or the HU. Due to the high number of non-students in the previous years, USBF would fail this requirement. To prevent this, we will start a waiting list for people, who aren’t UU/HU students (anymore). No exceptions will be made for people who have been a member of USBF in the past. When four HU/UU students join the club, the first on the waiting list will be allowed to become a member and join matches and practices. This also applies to PhD students and HKU students. Sending a mail to info@usbf.nl with a request to join us counts as an application for the waiting list. However, do not buy the club’s card yet, as you’re not assured of a place in the club. --USBF REGISTRATION-- At every SSV a subscription has to be paid next to the Olympas/club’s card. This will be €25,- for USBF, or €15,- per semester. --OPENING DRINKS-- On Thursday the 10th of September, we will hold the first USBF drinks of the new school year. New members can meet each other and other members. Furthermore, this could be a chance for (new) members to find a team for him- or herself. You're welcome at 21.00 in café Boslust which is located at Mariastraat 31. (in the alley across from the HEMA on the Steenweg). The first drink is on us! We hope te see each and everyone of you at the opening tournament and at the opening drinks. With kind regards, Your 2015-2016 USBF Board

Introduction Tournament 7th of September

August 31, 2015 Algemeen by USBF Bestuur

Dear USBF-members, The new USBF season will start on Monday the 7th of September! We’ll start the season with a five on five mix-tournament per level. The courts will be open at 7.00 PM and the first matches will start around 19.25. The tournament will be played in different levels, so that players can learn each other’s names and so that you can scout potential teammates. At the same on the beginner’s court, a one hour training will be given, after which they will start their own mix-tournament. Further information will be given on Monday itself. Unlike previous years, we won't be starting with the matches of the competitions on Monday the 14th of September. As the week before, we’ll continue with a new mix tournament (that means new teams!). The final team formats will also be registered. For this you can submit a complete team or register as a couple, triplet, etc. after which the teams will be announced and a final game will be played with your final team format. More information will be given on this day. The tournament is open for members and non-members (students only). It is not necessary to register for the tournament. Entrance is free. See you soon!

Teams from all across Europe as well the Netherlands come together for a long weekend of basketball and partying. This year MIT is held between May 29th and June 1st at Olympos sport complex.

Keep in mind that of course it is a weekend of playing basketball, but partying and drinking and having a great time is just as important. MIT Match-Watching Group: On Saturday evening there is the All-Star of MIT and it features a bunch of extremely good basketball players and lots of spectacular dunks and highlight plays. On Sunday afternoon the Women-high and Men-high finals are being held and again they feature a really high level of basketball. All the games are free to watch and are held at Olympos.
