INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Fever will host their only preseason home game on Tuesday, May 2 vs. the Washington Mystics. This contest will be held at Indiana Farmers Coliseum.
Prior to the game, in conjunction with Community Health Network, the Indiana Fever will host their annual Choices for Champions educational program from 10:00 to 11:15 a.m.
Tipoff between the Fever and Mystics is at noon ET. The Fever’s preseason game returns to Indiana Farmers Coliseum where the Fever hosted the Mystics in 2015. The afternoon preseason date at Indiana Farmers Coliseum allows schools a better chance to participate in the Choices for Champions event.
Students ranging from 4th to 8th grade will participate in an educational opportunity centered on anti-bullying and healthy lifestyle choices, both inside and outside of the classroom. The goal of the program is to empower youth, help build self-confidence to approach life’s everyday challenges, and find ways to look at daily circumstances with a positive outlook.
Behavioral Health representatives from Community Health Network will talk to students about maintaining good mental health and suicide prevention and awareness. Additionally, counselors from Community will be available for discussions and private conversations with attendees.
An anti-bullying message will be presented by Camishe Nunley, owner of the Healing Your Hidden Hurts agency dedicated to trauma survivors. Its “Building Resiliency In Children” anti-bullying program will deliver information on ways to create an atmosphere where bullying is not permitted.
Law enforcement officials have annually participated, and Fever players will discuss personal stories and lifestyle choices that have led them through college and into the WNBA. Schools are encouraged to prepare for the educational program by conducting a “No Name-Calling Week,” wear Fever colors, and create anti-bullying posters for hallways and classrooms.
A group admission rate for school and student groups is $8, while supplies last. Students and groups are welcomed to bring sack lunches. If interested in group tickets, please call the Fever Service Line at (317) 917-2528.
