Eye on the ball

San Antonio Spurs players, assistant coaches and video coordinators hosted two youth clinics for participants in the Spurs Youth Basketball League, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, during the month of March.

Spurs guard Danny Green and assistant coach Becky Hammon led a clinic at the Garza Community Center and guard Cory Joseph and assistant coach Jim Boylen hosted another clinic at the East Side Boys & Girls Club.

The clinics allowed one on one instruction with SYBL players ages 8 - 14 as the San Antonio Spurs coaches and players led groups in shooting, dribbling and passing drills. The players and coaches also emphasized the importance of respect and making positive choices, two tenants of the league, when addressing the young players. 

The Spurs Youth Basketball League, presented by Pizza Hut, is funded by Silver & Black Give Back. Co-founded by Coach Popovich and Frank Martin, the league focuses on the positive character lessons learned from sport.

sbgb theme night

Power to Empower

On Tuesday, March 10th kids took over the AT&T Center at the inaugural Spurs Silver & Black Give Back Theme Night. Dozens of kids who participate in Silver & Black Give Back programs had the opportunity to shadow members of our SS&E staff - they were greeters, Silver Dancers, broadcast announcers, in-arena hosts, photographers, journalists, producers and even a DJ. 

This opportunity was a once-in-a-lifetime chance for these kids to see what it takes to put on a Spurs game. Their mentors made sure they were involved in every step of the production. All in all we couldn't be prouder of these kids.

Their future is so bright, we've gotta wear shades!

 Post Game Jersey Auction a success

Silver & Black Give Back supporters joined the Coyote, Silver Dancers and Bill Land following the Spurs game on March 6 for an amazing opportunity to bid on their favorite Spurs game-worn military jerseys.

Winners were able to meet the player whose jersey they won and had the opportunity to get the jersey autographed and take a photo with their player.
