University of Portland, Partners in Play! Girl’s Basketball Season Gearing Up

Girls’ Basketball season kicks off with Extravaganza hosted at University of Portland.

Girls in 4th and 5th grade will hit the hardwood at our 3rd Annual Playworks Basketball Extravaganza at the University of Portland on December 3, 2011.  Girls will build skills and strategies of the game, make new friends and experience what it’s like to be a part of a team. All participants will also receive an official Playworks league t-shirt! We may even have a visit from one or more Portland Pilot’s team members.

Games will be at Grout, Rigler and Peninsula Park Community Center beginning the week December 5th, and run through the first week in February. Check out the Leagues Schedule section at here and support your neighborhood schools.

Three league rules to live by: Respect the Game, Play Hard, Have Fun!!
