Spurs Family Fantasy

Thank you for supporting Silver & Black Give Back

Silver & Black Give Back thanks everyone who participated in and supported this season's Spurs Family Fantasy! The attendees learned dribbling and shooting skills alongside San Antonio Spurs players and coaches, toured the practice facility, got ankles taped much like the players do, and at the end of the event received a one day "contract" with the San Antonio Spurs.

Parents got an hour long debrief with General Manager RC Buford, where he walked them through the evaluation and drafting process in the team's film room.

The Spurs Family Fantasy benefitted the Spurs Youth Basketball League, one of Silver & Black Give Back's premiere initiatives.

Check out the photos and video from the event!


Showdown in the Kitchen

Team Up Challenge students from George Gervin Academy spend afternoon cooking

Fifth graders at the George Gervin Academy are constructing a community garden on their campus as part of their Team Up Challenge project this season. The group hopes to encourage their campus and community to eat healthier by providing them with free items from their garden.

The group also plans to create a healthy cookbook featuring ingredients from their garden - and so they joined San Antonio Spurs forward Boris Diaw at the Central Market cooking school to learn how to make fruit and vegetable crepes. Students learned how to flip crepes with Diaw, and then got to taste their creations.

The Gervin Academy students plan to feature the recipes in their cookbook!
