Playworks Chicago kicked off the 2011-12 Girls Basketball season with our first ever Extravaganza, an event where all of our schools’ teams (comprised of 4th and 5th graders) came together for a skills-building clinic. At stations led by our Playworks Program Coordinators, players were able to practice their shooting, rebounding, passing, dribbling and defensive skills. The Girls Basketball Extravaganza was an introduction to basketball for many girls and was a great way to teach the basics of the game! At the end of the evening, teams comprised of players from different schools scrimmaged to show off their new talents.
Many thanks to Union Park for hosting both the Extravaganza and our weekly games. And, a big “whoosh clap” to the families for their support!
