Playworks Night at the Bucks Game

  1. Updates

Playworks Wisconsin kicked off our 4th and 5th grade girls basketball season with an evening of cheers, laughs, and team bonding at the Milwaukee Bucks game April 9. A huge thank you to the Milwaukee Bucks for providing Playworks with tickets for several of our school teams to attend the game with their family members and Playworks staff.

Highlights of the night included Playworks Program Managers David Anderson and PJ Dever leading the Playworks section in cheers commonly heard on our playgrounds, such as Why I Ate the Pie, The Bananas Cheer, Who Rocks and more, in addition to watching an exciting game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Indiana Pacers.

“Our basketball league provides an opportunity for many girls to experience being on a team for the first time while they learn the basic skills of basketball,” said Anderson. “Feeling connected to their coach and new teammates is important for a positive league experience which is why we were excited to work with the Bucks to provide this team-building opportunity for our girls.”

Playworks leagues focus on teaching students who have never been on a team before the fundamentals of a sport and how to develop a positive experience with sports through healthy competition. Playworks girls basketball league nights will take place Wednesday evenings, April 23 – May 21. Contact Katie at kdavis@playworks.org if you would like to get involved.
