Over the past few years, this is by far the question I've been asked most often. Lots of people are interested in joining the NBA All-Star events, and it seems that this information is hard to find on the Internet, so it's fair to dedicate a single page to this.


If you want more info to volunteer for the 2015 New York NBA House just send me a message with a few words and I'll add your name to my 2015 volunteer mailing list, and I'll contact you as soon as the volunteer registration program starts.

The NBA has just announced that the traditional Jam Session will be hosted in two different places, so a lot of volunteers would be needed!
- Skylight at Moynihan Station (360 West 33rd Street between 8th and 9th Avenues) Feb. 10-16
- Paramount Theatre at LIU Brooklyn (1 University Plaza, Brooklyn - Long Island University Campus) Feb. 11-15

NBA House tickets will be on sale in January.
