On August 20, 2018, several members of local Boys and Girls Clubs participated in the NBA Math Hoops Championship at Rainier Vista Boys and Girls Club. NBA Math Hoops is a fast-paced basketball board game, curriculum, and community program that allows students to learn fundamental math skills through direct engagement with the real statistics of their favorite NBA and WNBA players. These participants proved to be the best at their local club, playing all summer as part of their Summer Brain Gain curriculum. During the tournament, they competed in pairs to establish the Seattle summer champions.
Following the tournament, all participants were invited to the August 26th Storm Semifinal playoff game against Phoenix. The two pairs that competed in the championship game were honored on court and joined game captains from both teams!
Congratulations to Henriq and Izaiah who finished as our 2018 Seattle summer champs!
