Take your kid to open gym tomorrow

Starting tomorrow at 10 AM, Kids from 10 to 18 will be able to get some run against other kids their own age at the Reggie Lewis Track & Athletic center. 

Converse is putting it all together.  Here's the info they sent me:

Converse Open Gym is a program held in select cities around the country that gives kids, regardless of skill level, the chance to play basketball in a safe and organized environment. Boston Open Gym takes place every month. 

More than 400 kids, ages 10-18 are expected to participate in the Boston Open Gym program on Saturday, where they will compete in pick-up basketball games and receive Converse gear. There is no need to register before hand.

Participants will have an opportunity to win shoes and enjoy other Open Gym activities including a photo booth, DJ, product-trial station and the Converse Open Gym barber shop, where a local barber will be providing free hair-cuts throughout the day.  

WHEN:            Saturday, September 18

10 AM – 6 PM

Session 1: 10-13 years old
Session 2: 13-15 years old
Session 3: 14-17 years old
Session 4: 15-18 years old

Yes, it's a big Converse marketing thing.  But it's also free run for your kid against other kids their age.  Where else are you gonna be able to bring a 12 year old for some pick up run?  It's a good thing and it'll probably be fun for the kids involved.
