2018 ACADEMY AWARDS
The 2018 Pistons Academy Awards Party is back! On March 23, 2018, over 3000 people are expected to attend this celebration of youth basketball with the Detroit Pistons at Little Caesar’s Arena!
The Pistons Academy Awards Show is open to everyone in grades K-8. It is designed to recognize all the league participants from Allen Park, Birmingham, Southfield and the YMCAs of Metropolitan Detroit. It is by far the largest basketball party in the world! Click here to RSVP
The event is held at Little Caesars Arena every March and is fashioned similar to the Academy Awards show in Hollywood. The event includes free snacks at the concession stands, photo opportunities with HOOPER, Piston player interviews (Ish Smith and John Luer) and performances from our entertainment teams like the Flight Crew. There is no admission fee.
There is also a raffle where a $5 donation to the Pistons Academy Scholarship Fund can win you free participation in all Pistons Academy programming for life!
The show is designed to recognize players in our leagues in the following categories: Heart of a Champion (effort), Girls Player of the year, Defensive MVP, Rookie of the Year and Best Teammate (sportsmanship). Here is our Facebook Photo Album from 2016
