St. Martins Brooklyn Nets Event

Chris Fields, the St. Martins CYO Director, is coordinating a trip to Brooklyn to see the Nets play. See information Below…

St Martins CYO is sponsoring a trip to Brooklyn to see the Nets play at the Barclay Center. Chris Fields is now accepting ticket orders for the 12th Annual Brooklyn Nets event on Sunday, December 15 at the Barclays Center when the Nets vs. the Philadelphia 76’ers! So many memories have been made over the years at this event organized by St. Martin de Porres CYO, which 3,413 people have attended since 2008!  If you haven’t gone before, now is the time!

This event includes 2-hours of Barclays Center court time, High-Five lines, Anthem Buddies and Captain’s Huddle.  If you only go to one NBA game a year, why not go to this game with all the various activities!  

Because this is a group event, the pricing is substantially discounted from face value.  With KD and Kyrie now on the Nets, the atmosphere will be tremendous at the Barclays Center!

This event is open to anyone, but the FREE, round-trip bus from St. Martin to the Barclays Center is only for St. Martin CYO participants and their families.  If anyone else would like to take the bus, then the fee is $25 per person.  Please note that the bus leaves early so that families can go Christmas shopping in NYC or attend mass before the event. 

Below is the pricing and agenda for the day.  If you would like to purchase tickets, then please email Chris Fields at confirming how many tickets at what price / in what section after which please mail a check made out to Chris Fields to 79 Alda Drive, Poughkeepsie, NY 12603.  Once Chris knows who is going, he will keep you posted via email leading up to the event.   

Below are lists of all of our past events with links to their Facebook photo albums.  Please take a few minutes to browse through these, since if you plan to go to a NBA game, then please consider going with the CYO group given all the bells and whistles this event has.  Many CYO parishes and AAU organizations have joined over the years.  All you need to do is contact Chris to join this year!
