Pirate Blue holds two signature golf outings each year - the Pirate Blue Golf Outing at the Spring Lake Golf Club in early August and the Coach Mike Sheppard Golf Outing at the Maplewood Country Club in early October. Both outings are great chances to meet members of the coaching staff and athletic department, to see old friends and enjoy a round of golf with fellow Pirates. For details regarding the outings or sponsorship opportunities, please contact the Pirate Blue office at 973-275-6447.
We anticipate a sell out for both events so remember to book your foursome early.
The Pirate Blue travel program provides the opportunity for members to support our men’s basketball team on the road. Our fan travel packages are structured to allow for a unique blend of group activities, such as VIP receptions, private tours and a ticket to the game.
We offer convenient hotel locations, round trip ground transportation to and from the arena and airports, and much more. When you travel with Pirate Blue, you’re a member of the Pirate family. Our staff will work hard to make sure you have a first class experience.
Each season we offer two trips to away games and post season travel when applicable. We look forward to helping you book your Pirate Blue travel experience and to seeing you on our next road trip as we cheer the Pirates to victory!
For more information, please contact the Pirate Blue office at 973-275-6446.
