LIU Brooklyn Launches 8th Annual Games 4 Gear Program
Brooklyn Elementary Schools and Community Centers Share in Blackbirds Hoops Success
For the 2017-2018 men's and women's basketball season, the LIU Brooklyn Athletic Department will continue with its inspired approach to connect elementary school children from the Bedford-Stuyvesant, Carroll Gardens, Clinton Hill, Crown Heights, Fort Greene, and Park Slope communities with the school's Division I basketball teams. The department's Games 4 Gear (G4G) program provides free admission to children and their families at select Blackbird home basketball games.
The four programs that record the best attendance at these games will be awarded $500 to purchase equipment and gear for their respective basketball programs.
For more information about LIU Brooklyn’s G4G program, please contact Sharon Abbate (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit liuathletics.com
