BALLOON HOCKEY: Balloon hockey is sure to get the children moving and is a perfect game for the ‘on your mark, get set’ summer reading theme. We'll need a few items to make our hockey stick and then it's just blowing up the balloons and we're on our way to invigorating play!

This is a summer reading activity for kids entering kindergarten through grade 5. Registration is required for this event taking place on Monday, July 25th, at 6:30pm.  After we get our supplies ready there will be nothing left to do but smack the balloons right to the goal! We’ll shoot, and then we’ll score! Refreshments will be provided for the recovery afterward.  :)

BASKETBALL ENTERTAINMENT WITH CHAMPION ILZE LUNEAU: You will be amazed with never before seen basketball ball-handling tricks with three, four, five, and six basketballs.  Ilze dribbles, juggles and spins basketballs on a balance board, and using other props to music and dance.  Volunteers may get to spin 1, 2 and 5 or 6 basketballs at once, eat a pudding while a ball spins on a spoon, etc.
Ilze is the first person (male or female) to ever dribble 5 and 6 basketballs using just hands.  And Ilze is the only one who can dribble 5 basketballs on an indo board.

You can enjoy the show and at the same time hear a valuable message on setting goals, working hard, never giving up and leading a balanced life while achieving your dreams and enjoying every day. 

Ilze Auzina-Luneau came to United States from Latvia. Ilze was an All-American basketball player at the College of Saint Rose, 1993-1997, and graduated with a finance and international business degree in 1997.  In 2001, she received her MBA degree from SUNY, Albany.  After finishing her degree and having three girls, Ilze started performing basketball shows full-time year round.

Ilze has performed at many half-time shows at college, NBA and WNBA games, Final Four, NBA All-Star, many school assemblies and many Christian outreach events (especially Upward Basketball leagues). Ilze has also appeared on ESPN, Ellene Degeneres and Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
