This year, the Storm and Kaiser Permanente were excited to present the Seattle Storm Community Practice in SeaTac, WA at Seattle Christian School. Hosted by City of SeaTac and Seattle Southside Regional Tourism Authority, this kid-friendly event gave local youth the chance to see Storm players up close and personal and join in on their practice, emceed by Shellie Hart. Kids also participated in games and contests, won prizes, received autographs from Storm-players and Doppler, and saw performance by the Storm Dance Troupe. Kaiser Permanente handed out free t-shirts, basketballs, and other goodies. The Storm gave away tickets to Seattle’s home game on August 17 against the New York Liberty for StormFit Night presented by Kaiser Permanente. The Community Practice is a favorite each year as it is free to the community and open to all ages.
The Storm and Kaiser Permanente also presented an additional Community Practice at Nisqually Youth Center.
