Teams from all 20 Playworks partner schools joined together to learn new skills, meet new friends, and get in the game at the 6th Annual 4th & 5th Grade Girls’ Basketball Extravaganza hosted at the University of Portland Chiles Center.
The morning started off with stretches and a visit from our the Portland Trail Blazers mascot Blaze the Trail Cat.
With some help from Coaches and volunteers, players learned to pass, dribble, shoot, and play defense.
Players from the different schools met new friends while playing!
The University of Portland Women’s Basketball Team came to give a demonstration and answer some question. One questions asked was “How do you get so tall?”, with the entire UP team answering, “Eat your vegetables!”
One last cheer to end the day!
