What the heck is March Madness and why is everyone talking about it? Not to worry – OISS & Yale's Basketball Coaches are here to explain!

On March 17th, join OISS and Yale Women's Basketball Coach Allison Guth and Assistant Coach Emma Golen to learn more about this U.S. basketball tournament. Coach Guth & Golen will give us an inside look at how this tournament works and their personal experiences competing in it. 

After learning about the tournament, OISS staffers Luca and Molly will teach you how make your very own March Madness Bracket to compete for bragging rights and Yale swag. We will walk you through the bracket scoring system that we have chosen so you can track your progress during the games, and keep up with the conversation with your U.S. classmates and co-workers!

Even if you aren’t that interested in sports, participating in a March Madness Bracket tournament is a great way to meet a new group of people and engage with the sport in a fun and different way.

During the final four games on Saturday, April 3rd and the final on Monday, April 5th we will watch a live stream of the games together and chat together over Zoom to share in the excitement. Further details available once you register.

After the final game on April 5th, we will announce the bracket champion and runner-up and they will receive some Yale swag valued at $75 and $50!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Note: The series is open to the Yale Community. Please RSVP in order to attend and receive the Zoom instructions.
