SEATTLE – The Seattle Storm, in partnership with the City of SeaTac and Seattle Southside Visitor Services, will be hosting a second community practice, open to the public, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on July 1 at Tyee High School in SeaTac.
The event will boast popular events such as a meet-‐and-‐greet with players, games and contests that offer prizes, and the opportunity to participate in Storm drills as directed by head coach and general manager Brian Agler.
“We are excited about our new partnership with the Seattle Storm and the opportunity to help bring this wonderful community event to our city,” said Mayor Mia Gregerson. “The support of the lodging industry and the participation of Seattle Southside Visitor Services exemplifies the strong relationship that the local tourism industry has with us. This type of event puts a spotlight on our goal to increase the visibility of SeaTac and to help create a more healthful, active and engaged community.”
Last month the Storm players were well received at Nisqually as dozens of kids joined layup lines and free-‐ throw contests and both children and adults were able to meet their favorite players at the end of practice, and this month, after a long road streak, the players and coaches are again looking forward to interacting with its fans both young and old.
