Bookshop Santa Cruz and the Santa Cruz Warriors are joining forces for an exciting afternoon of books and basketball. Santa Cruz Warriors' head coach Aaron Miles and his staff will host a Coaches for Kindness community event, presented by Nordic Naturals, to share their love of reading with local kids.
Join in the fun with the coaching staff as they share how reading has impacted their basketball careers. Interactive reading activities will be set up throughout Bookshop:
- Warriors storytime: Hear them read aloud from their favorite books.
- There will be fun and games for everyone who loves basketball and reading!
- Meet Mav'Riks and snap a picture with him!
Everyone at the Santa Cruz Warriors—staff, coaches and players do their very best to fulfill the needs of this community. From combating hunger to encouraging a life long love of reading and literacy in elementary and middle school children in the district, they have proven their service to the community on and off the court. In the past year, they have collectively participated in over 200 community events.
The Warriors support the needs of the community through various donation programs, the Santa Cruz School District Read-to-Achieve program, youth basketball programs, fit clinics and other events benefiting organizations such as the Special Olympics, the Volunteer Center, and Boys and Girls Club of Santa Cruz. Anyone can easily spot Mav’Rik, the Warriors’ delightful turtle mascot, spreading his energy among crowds at various community events throughout the year. It is with this same energy that the Warrior’s continue to share resources, build relationships and give back to our community.
This free event will take place at Bookshop Santa Cruz.
