On Friday, November 8, the Stockton Kings – the NBA G League affiliate of the Sacramento Kings – will tip-off their second season at Stockton Arena as they host the Santa Cruz Warriors, the NBA G League affiliate of the Golden State Warriors. Opening Night will feature the first in-game debut of 209 Hype, the team’s gender-inclusive hip-hop dance group. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the first 2,500 fans will receive a “Stock Up” Stockton Kings T-shirt.
The Stockton Kings will also introduce the “Thrive Zone” presented by Kaiser Permanente, which will provide family-friendly fun to fans. The “Thrive Zone” will be located on the main concourse at the top of Section 120 and feature seven interactive, oversized games for fans to enjoy promoting healthy behaviors while inspiring movement and play.
“We are excited to tip-off the second season of NBA G League action in Stockton,” said Stockton Kings Vice President of Business Operations, Dustin Toms. “Last season, the fans and city of Stockton welcomed us with open arms, and we look forward to giving back to this community and bringing only the best in family-friendly fun.”
Earlier this week, the Stockton Kings and Kaiser Permanente announced a multi-year partnership, launched “Thrive Week” and activated two of Kaiser Permanente’s community pillars – Housing and Homelessness and Public Safety—as part of the festivities. On Tuesday, members from the two organizations spent the morning volunteering at Gospel Center Rescue Mission in Stockton, cleaning the basement and chapel walls, and preparing lunch for those at the shelter. On Wednesday, the Stockton Kings hosted youth from Lord’s Gym City Center and Peaceful Warriors Movement to play basketball games against officers from the Stockton Police Department.
Tickets starting at less than $20 are still available for Opening Night at StocktonKings.com/Tickets or by visiting Stockton Arena Box Office.
