About USBF

USBF in a nutshell

The Utrechtse Studenten Basketball Federatie organizes an internal competition for roughly 220 members. Divided over three levels 16 self made teams play games of 1 hour. Throughout the year, it is always possible for players to switch playing levels in case they find another level is a better fit. The games are played on Monday evenings at 19:00-22:30.

There is no mandatory training at USBF. All teams play one game on Mondays. Besides their game, teams are asked to provide referees on a regular basis. The intention is to create an open and informal atmosphere where basketball is played enthusiastically and fair on all 4 levels. Throughout the year USBF organizes many fun activities to help you avoid your school work for a bit longer.

Mixed Basketball

All USBF teams are required to have at least one girl on the court at all times, and preferably more. This rule makes sure the open and accepting atmosphere at USBF is maintained. Female players are more than welcome at USBF.

Internal competition

We have an internal competition where we play enthusiastic and fair basketball. If you're too busy to train and play every weekend, USBF is perfect for you! We play every Monday, always at the same location (Olympos), but against different opponents that come together for a drink in the bar afterwards!

For all levels of experience

You've never played Basketball before? That is why all players are divided over four levels: low, mid, high and top. For the low level there is weekly training on Monday evenings. In this way we keep the sport accessible and fun for anyone and everyone.

What about a Beer?

Sports are a good way to make new friends. After game time the rivalry of the competition usually disappears and the Olympos sportscafé is the place for a nice cold beer. Do you want to play basketball but don't have too much time on your hands? Then become a member of USBF!

What does it cost?

For only €30,- and an Olympas you can play ball for the whole year. For more details please read the Frequently Asked Questions and Why an Olympas? pages. You can also sign up for one semester for €20,- and an Olympas.
