The Golden State Warriors Community Foundation, in partnership with the Institute of Contemporary Art San Francisco, Alive & Free - Omega Boys Club, and the Good Tidings Foundation, will unveil a newly refurbished basketball court at Alive & Free on June 27. The dedication ceremony will begin at 3:00 p.m. at the site and will be followed by a basketball clinic for local youth, hosted by Warriors Basketball Academy, from 4:00 to 4:45 p.m.


Youth Clinic and Neighbor Participation: We have invited the Bayview YMCA and the NABE to bring youth to the event where we are excited to offer a youth clinic. This clinic aims to provide a fun and educational experience for children aged 7 to 15. No prior skill level is necessary for participation.


The refurbished court is made possible by the Making Hoops program, a partnership between the Warriors Community Foundation and the Good Tidings Foundation, which has refurbished more than 90 basketball courts around the Bay Area. This is the third time this partnership has refurbished the court, first in 2008 with Warriors player Stephen Jackson, and another time in 2016 with then-Mayor Ed Lee.
