Commissioner Letter

June 13, 2018

Dear Kings and Queens Rise League Teams,

We had another great Kings and Queens Rise League Day under our belts. The day really highlighted our themes of Beloved Community and Teamwork. This week’s theme is Unity in the Community!

I am excited to announce that the Kings Player Wenyen Gabriel will attend the upcoming Game Day to surprise our youth! He will be coming at 12:15PM to pump up the crowd, shoot some baskets and take a group photo.

Additionally this will be our TEAM PHOTO Day! Please have your teams arrive an extra 30 minutes prior to their game to get their photo taken!
