It was a day they will not soon forget filled with fun, excitement, and for many, a brand-new experience.
The Salt Lake City Stars, the NBA G League affiliate of the Utah Jazz, hosted more than 5,000 fifth graders from Jordan School District and Granite School District elementary schools. It was the second annual Kids’ Day game held at the Delta Center where the Stars took on the Oklahoma City Blue, an Oklahoma City Thunder affiliate.
The Stars’ season goal is to educate and inform young students about the possible careers in sports across all fields, beyond just a player.
“We are excited to continue to grow the Stars’ annual Kids Day Game tradition as we welcome the Jordan and Granite School Districts,” said Salt Lake City Stars President Jonathan Rinehart. “It means a lot to our team and our staff to give back to the community and support even the youngest of our fans.
The event brought an abundance of excitement and entertainment keeping the young fans engaged in the game, which included Stars mascot Buster the Bear, T-shirt giveaways, and interactive in-game activities, as well as appearances by the Utah Jazz Bear and the Zyia Active Jazz Dancers.
Thanks to the Salt Lake City Stars for giving students such an unforgettable experience!
