5th Annual Womens Basketball Youth Day
Presented by Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield
The Xavier University women's basketball team encourages everyone to have “A Healthy Xperience” Wednesday, February 18 at Cintas Center as the Musketeers take on the LaSalle Explorers at 10:00 am.
Over 7,100 students in grades 3-8 have participated in Xavier Youth Day during the last three years. This year, Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield is the official sponsor and the American Heart Association is offering its support.
Xavier Youth Day begins when students arrive in their buses at 9:30 a.m. This year’s program will include demonstrations from a martial arts teacher, Xavier student-athletes, Xavier athletic trainers, and an appearance by one of the women’s basketball coaches. Students will also be treated to on-court interactive contests and in-game promotions to get them involved. They will be provided with an electric atmosphere that will teach them the importance of living a healthy life. Students will enjoy their lunches with a healthful drink from Xavier before the game tips off at 10:00. For more information about “A Healthy Xperience,” please call Becky Jackson at (513) 745-3389.
