Basketball Committee

Roles of the Basketball Committee

The Basketball Committee is composed of volunteer students from Duke University's Graduate & Professional Schools.

Each year, the Basketball Committee is responsible for planning and overseeing the distribution of season tickets to the men's home basketball games via Duke Basketball Campout. The policy for ticket distribution is composed by the committee and brought before the General Assembly for approval. The Basketball Chairs of this committee are appointed via a vote by active committee members.

Interested in Joining the Basketball Committee?

As a committee, we are always looking for new members, volunteers and ideas for Campout. All Duke Graduate and Professional students are welcome to join the Basketball Committee. There are a number of ways to get involved and volunteer and the degree of involvement is entirely up to each member. Your involvement as a committee member makes your eligible to usher Men's basketball games.

In our entirely biased opinion, there is no other group at Duke that has more fun doing their jobs than us! The Basketball Committee is a great way for students to meet people from outside their program/school and as an usher, you can attend basketball games and stand in the front of our section!

The Basketball Committee meets regularly from New Student Orientation until Campout. The dates for the Fall 2016 meetings are TBD, all at 6:30 pm in Biological Sciences (130 Science Drive) room 111. Bring your Duke ID to scan for attendance! You must attend or be excused from two of the three meetings to qualify to be an usher, so please email Committee Secretary Abbe LaBella if you have a class or other conflict.  All meetings are announced through the Basketball Committee List-serve and the Duke Bball Chairs.

Much of the organization and planning that goes into Campout each year is performed by Sub-Committee Leaders. Sub-committee chair positions are filled via an application process that is open to all Graduate & Professional students in the spring. Many sub-committees work during the summer and solicit volunteers for various activities via the list-serve. In the fall, sub-committees will solicit volunteers at Basketball Committee meetings as well as through the list-serve.
