WASHINGTON, D.C.-250 children from the Fairfax County School Age Child Care program will have the opportunity to perform as part of the Washington Mystics' pregame and halftime show on August 13, 2014 at the Verizon Center. SACC has partnered with the Washington Mystics basketball team to provide this and other experiences for children participating in SACC's Camp Discovery.

Nearly 1,200 children from the Performer's Cabin of SACC Camp Discovery centers attended an exciting dance clinic in which they learned the routines from Derric Whitfield, the Mystics' choreographer. In preparation for the performance, children who attended the clinic have been enthusiastically practicing the dance routine.

SACC's partnership with the Mystics also included the opportunity for over 1,200 children in the camp's Athlete's Cabins to participate in a basketball skills clinic. Children participated in skills development experiences focused on footwork and ball handling. The clinic also included a nutritional focus. "We are excited about our partnership with the Mystics, which has led to unique opportunities for children attending SACC's Camp Discovery this summer," said Damon Terrell, SACC regional supervisor.

SACC will have close to 3,000 children in attendance at the game on Wednesday, August 13, to cheer for the Mystics when they take on the Chicago Sky. The children participating in the pregame and halftime shows are enthusiastic about being able to perform in front of the crowd. Children and staff in the stands will proudly cheer on the performers and the team with a display of handmade posters. School Age Child Care is a program of the Fairfax County Office for Children. SACC helps families succeed and children thrive by providing high quality school age child care before- and after-school and during school breaks.
