Congratulations if you have been invited to the annual Breakdown Sports Media basketball photo shoots! You are among a select group of players from all over Minnesota, representing different geographic areas and grades who have been selected for this honor. We’re running the photo shoots on many different dates from late July through early September. Please see the registration forms for the exact dates and locations.
All players invited to the photo shoot have the opportunity to get a great deal on our 2020-21 guidebook and calendar. This deal is available only to players invited to the photo shoots! It’s just $59.99 for the softcover book combination and $79.99 for the hardcover book combination — and we're offering a downloadable PDF version of the book (available a month earlier) for the first time for $19.99 on top of any book order ($59.99 as a standalone product).
How were you selected? The Breakdown has a panel that consists of members all across Minnesota. At the conclusion of the season, our staff submits its picks of players worthy to be considered among the best in the state and from that list, a group of finalists is selected for this honor. We take into account recommendations from coaches, past season honors and statistics, offseason work, etc.
How does it work? In order to accommodate a large group of top players (and to keep in line with COVID-19 recommendations), we have spread all photo shoots out over a multiple-hour period, with 5-minute time frames for photos.
• Please bring your full uniform, including shoes and socks. For this year because of social distancing in response to COVID-19, please also please bring your own basketball.
• professional studio photographers are present
• individual photos will be taken (group and combination photos will be taken if social distancing restrictions are eased).
• individual information, including a biography and Q and A form, will be used in the Breakdown book
• once you arrive, the photo shoot should be completed within 30 minutes
COVID-19 accommodations are as numbered below: please register ONLINE ahead of time as we will have 5-minute windows set up for each player. Walk-ins will have a separate line and we will take them as we can fit them into the schedule.
Can't make it to any of the dates? You can still be in the book and receive the same special deal! Just fill out the registration form without selecting a date, complete the Q and A form and email a photo to email@example.com.
