Tickets start at just $5 for the Women’s Game vs. Texas Tech (Tipoff @ 1:00pm) & Tickets start at just $25 for the Men’s Game vs. Texas (Tipoff @ 6:00pm). Each ticket includes admission to the game and each Scout in attendance will receive an exclusive 2023 Scout Day Basketball Patch. A portion of each ticket sold goes back to support the your local Boy Scout Council. This offer is open to all Scout Members, families, and friends.

All patches can be picked up on game day PRIOR to the start of the game. Gates open an hour and a half prior to Tipoff. There will be a table just inside the Gold Gate entrance just down from the Ticket Office. At the table there will be a sign that reads “SCOUT DAY PATCH PICK UP.” The table will remain set up until Tipoff.

EPA Award

The Environmental Protection Agency, as part of a public awareness campaign to celebrate its first 50 years, has partnered with the Boy Scouts of America to create an award for members of troops, crews and ships. This new award will recognize youth who research and learn about the subjects of human health and the environment, as the EPA develops its vision for the next 50 years. The objective of the EPA award is to combine a variety of disciplines to challenge and educate youth; introduce them to the breadth of the EPA’s involvement in environmental protection and conservation; and encourage them to research, investigate, experiment, demonstrate, survey, and study air pollution, water pollution, solid and hazardous waste, and ocean dumping.
