Through our partnership with the Los Angeles Clippers, a few of our kids got to play on the STAPLES Center floor where the stars get to perform. The process to be selected to the All Star team was an easy but effective one. The coaches from each grade decided a top 7 but could not pick anyone from their own team. The ones who were selected should hold their heads up with great pride that they earned the respect of their peers throughout the season. The chance to play at STAPLES Center is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity and the kids and parents all soaked it up.
Thank you to all the families who could attend and thanks for making the drive out to LA. Also, a special thank you to the Clippers organization for letting our kids go out there and have a moment they truly will never forget. Below is a list of all the kids who were selected and able to attend the All Star game.
Our first annual Battle of the Bay Tournament, which consisted of both our Lou Yantorn and Eastbluff teams, could not have been a bigger success. Patterned after the NCAA March Madness, the drama was scintillating.
Our championship games were living proof of this as all 4 championship games were decided by 4 points or less!
Since we have a partnership with the Los Angeles Clippers, our gym was decorated with Clipper signs, balloons and all kids were introduced on the PA system.
Our parents had the gym rocking with noise as well. What an exciting time for the kids! Congratulations to all the teams that won! We hope all the families who got to participate enjoyed it as much as we did and thanks to all the parents for making our season such a huge success!
