More Ways to Celebrate March

Let the madness begin! Embrace the college basketball fever sweeping the nation and celebrate the season with your family and friends. Here are four ways to enjoy the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament watching and playing from your home.

Host your own Basketball Tournament

Play your own basketball tournament in the driveway with your Goalrilla basketball goal. Arrange teams of three on three and make your own bracket to see who is the best team in the neighborhood. If numbers are a challenge, play a pickup game, arrange a free-throw contest, or see who can complete skills challenges the fastest such as dribbling through cones or precision-passing. Add a collegiate pole pad to your basketball goal for even more school spirit. 

Make it a Family Event

Instead of going out to watch the games, make it a family event at your house for March Madness. Spread out the snacks, drinks, and games on multiple televisions. Open up your doors to the outside spring air for your kids to easily run in and out of the house between games and during commercials. Stay hyped all day while shooting hoops imitating your favorite college players. 

Workout Instead of Pigging Out

Instead of scarfing down unhealthy snacks, watch the games with a March Madness workout chart handy. Each time a 3-pointer is made, do 5 squats. If there is a turnover, do 15 lunges. If a player fouls out, do 20 crunches, or if a free throw is missed, do 10 sit ups. You can create a workout for every play. You’ll help with you and your athletes’ conditioning while watching others.

Test your Basketball Trivia Knowledge

Quiz each other on past and present college basketball teams. Who was the coach at Duke University before Coach K? Which school has made the most Final Four appearances? Which school has the most NCAA tournament victories of all time? What team had the longest drought between NCAA appearances? The possible trivia questions are endless. The winner earns the best seat in the house.
