The 2019 Pistons Academy Awards Party is back! From 6-8:30pm on Monday, March 4, 2019, over 3000 people are expected to attend this free party and celebrate youth basketball with the Detroit Pistons!
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, Brighton, Southfield, and the Monroe Family YMCA. It is by far the largest basketball party in the world!
The event is held at Little Caesars Arena every March and is fashioned similar to the Academy Awards show in Hollywood. The event includes many interactive events on the concourse such as photo opportunities with HOOPER, Piston player autographs, pop-a-shot, photo booths and much more. Our concession stands will offer special event pricing and all kids will be able to go onto the Pistons court to watch our dunk team perform! There are no admission charges and parking is totally FREE!
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
Below are brief videos from past awards shows:
