San Francisco State teams up with Reading Partners

Members of the SF State men's basketball team volunteered this past Friday afternoon at Garfield Elementary School in Redwood City with the Reading Partners Program. The Gators had one-on-one sessions of reading practice with the students along with a short basketball clinic.

"We're lucky to continue to our relationship with Reading Partners," said SF State head coach Paul Trevor. "They are doing great and essential work to help make sure all kids have a good foundation for the future."

In doing their one-on-one sessions, the Gators had the students select a book for the tutor read to them. Then they together worked on the skill for that day. At the end, the student then read to the tutor. After that, we ran a short basketball clinic for the kids in their after school program. The Gators worked on some fundamentals and played some games. At the end of the day, the Gators handed out and signed posters.

"Our guys get a lot out of this event because it takes them a little out of their comfort zone," added SF State assistant coach Vince Inglima. "They have to read out loud and teach a lesson. Some of them are pretty nervous about the idea at first, but by the end of the day, they are having a great time. It is a learning experience for them as well."
