Section 5 – Completed!

Phase 1 of The Game Over Total Court Maker for Operation Co-op brought us out to Co-op City.  Check out the video and pictures documenting the Game Over Total Court Make Over.

On September 12 2015 section 5 celebrated the official opening and dedication of the first court to receive a “Game Over Total Court  Make Over” click here to see the action on that day.

Above: 8/20/15 the first phase of the Operation Co-op Court Make Over was completed.  At 8am on this beautiful morning,  old worn backboards were removed and new Tru-Bounce backboards and rims were installed.  Although retro fitting the new backboards presented some challenges, the installation went without a hitch. Cracked undersized backboards are now a thing of the past. The ballers of section five now have the option of playing full court basketball on their new regulation height fiberglass goals with break a way rims.
