Silver Stars Host Fit Clinic for Team Up

Students from Any Baby Can's "Fit Kids and Sibs" Team Up Challenge group

The kids lined up to make free throws and each time the baksetball went in the crowd erupted. It was the first free throw many of the students had ever made.

Silver Stars Shameka Christon and Delisha Milton-Jones spent an afternoon with Any Baby Can's "Fit Kids and Sibs" group, teaching them basketball skills and drills as part of their Team Up Challenge project.

"Fit Kids and Sibs" teaches kids how to play together, even though they face different developmental challenges. Over 30 siblings participated in the event at the AT&T Center, and they will continue to learn how to incorporate everyone into their games throughout the summer.

For the Love of Dance

The 11 dancers from Respite Care sung on their way over to the AT&T Center in preparation for their dance clinic as part of their Team Up Challenge project to learn about healthy exercise and nutrition.

The group learned a dance from members of the Stars Squad dance team and took photos on the court. To see photos of the event click here.

The POSSE provides volunteers for SBGB's events and program activities

The People of Spurs Sports & Entertainment (POSSE) give their time throughout the year to help Silver & Black Give Back achieve our mission of engaging young people to enrich their community.

Beyond that, the POSSE has helped build playgrounds and plant gardens through the Team Up Challenge and volunteered at fundraisers and events like the Spurs Family Fantasy and Tux 'N Tennies Dinner & Auction.
