Special Basketball Event

Woodgrove High School scrimmage with their varsity and JV girls' basketball teams

We plan to pull from our group 1 teams, the Lancers, Mavericks, and Bobcats, to form two teams for the scrimmage. Please email Joe Bleull and let them know if you plan to attend and which events. They need to get a headcount to make sure they can fill up the two teams.


There are two events planned:


  1. Monday, December 18 - We are invited to attend the Woodgrove girl’s basketball home game. The JV game starts at 5:45 PM, and the Varsity game starts around 7 PM.  Players should come wearing their jersey tops with a tee shirt underneath. They will recognize our Special Olympic teams at some point during the evening.
  2. Saturday, December 30 – Scrimmage at 2 PM at Woodgrove H.S. Enter through the main entrance. We will split the Lancers, Mavericks, and Bobcats into two teams to play the varsity and JV teams. Each team will play two quarters. Our players should wear their full SO uniforms.
