The Mountain House Wolverines AAU club kicked-off its 2013 AAU Spring season at the Golden State Warriors practice facility in Oakland, California!
On Saturday March 2nd, Wolverines players received the privilege of practicing and scrimmaging at the practice facility where current Warriors players Stephen Curry, David Lee, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes and Jarrett Jack practice everyday! While waiting in the hallway prior to entering the facility, Wolverines players posed in front of the life-size images of Warriors legends Rick Barry, Al Attles, Tim Hardaway, Chris Mullin and Clyde Lee.
The kids faces lit up walking into the facility, while coaches did their best to keep their players focused on improving their game in such a special environment. Coaches ran drills at each basket, assisted by high school players from Encinal High in Alameda! The Warriors girls stuck around and mingled with the Wolverines and Warriors staff kept everyone feeling upbeat!
Overall, a great day for all Wolverines families, players and coaches! This was a special way for Wolverines players to not only kick off the 2013 spring season, but to also learn the names of NBA greats from a previous generation.
Thanks to the Golden State Warriors for giving our kids such a special opportunity!
