Health and wellness is a primary focus of the Storm organization and Kaiser Permanente. Together, we offered six free youth basketball clinics last summer to help kids work on basketball skills, get active, and have fun. More than 300 kids participated at various locations throughout the Seattle area. Through basketball and health tips, we inspired young people to be active and stay healthy by finding an activity they enjoy.
For the fifth consecutive year, the Storm is teaming up with Kaiser Permanente to host basketball clinics throughout the greater Seattle area. This year, we will be offering four FREE clinics where Storm players will join participants in on-court drills. Participants will receive a free t-shirt, basketball, care packets, healthy snacks, health information, and more. It’s a great way to learn how to hoop — and health — it up. Some clinics are closed to the public. Please see below for information on how to sign up.
