As the Detroit Pistons prepare for their season opener on October 31, the Pistons Academy is preparing for their fall season’s closing ceremonies. To commemorate the first season of Pistons Academy, we are hosting two very special events.
The first is the “Academy Awards” on Friday November 2nd. This event will recognize many of the players currently in the Pistons Academy. Awards such as Most Improved, Best Sportsmanship, All-league and the Pistons Academy MVP will be passed out to those players who have worked so hard this season. After the awards, the Pistons dunk team, “The Flight Crew” will showcase their amazing passing and dunking skills. HOOPER, the Pistons mascot, will also be there to entertain. The Academy Awards will be held at Berkshire Middle School from 7:45pm-9:00pm on Friday November 2. Admission is free and everyone is welcome!
The second event will be the Pistons Academy Night at the Palace. On Sunday, November 18, members of the Pistons Academy are invited to attend a free basketball clinic at the Palace. Then, every player gets a FREE ticket to watch the Pistons take on the Boston Celtics. Parents can purchase additional tickets at a discounted price. The Clinic is from 3:30-5pm and friends are welcome to attend. Check out the form for more information or call Geo Thomas at 248-371-2048. ACADEMY NIGHT AT THE PALACE ORDER FORM
