Warriors’ Open Practice Unites Bay Area Community

  1. Updates

Last Wednesday, two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry accepted the Free Throw Percentage Champion Award from Playworks Junior Coach Kevin Escobar, a student at Highland Elementary in Richmond, CA.

Playworks had the opportunity to publically thank the Warriors for their hard work this past season at the Warrior’s Open Practice event. Playworks Northern California joined thousands of fans to cheer on the Warriors and support Bay Area youth.

With the 2016-17 NBA regular season kicking off at the end of October, the Golden State Warriors united 13,500 fans for Open Practice 2016. This marked the largest fan turnout for Open Practice in the Warriors’ history, with event proceeds supporting the Warriors Community Foundation.

Playworks Northern California continues to partner with the Warriors Community Foundation to fulfill their mission of improving educational equity in Alameda and San Francisco counties. Through the Foundation’s Hoops For Kids program, Playworks Northern California received donations for baskets earned by the Warriors during the 2015-16 season.

Playworks Northern California is thrilled to continue to partner with the Warriors Community Foundation to help Bay Area kids access safe, healthy play every day and looks forward to cheering the Warriors through another NBA Championship.
