Coach Chris Mack Hosts First 2021-22 "Game Day" Program Pre-KSU

Monday, November 1, 2021


Coach Chis Mack joined by "Game Day" students pre-KSU Exhibition Game















October 29, 2021, Louisville, KY - 
Just before UofL’s first game day of the 2021-22 season – an exhibition match against Kentucky State -- men’s head basketball coach Chris Mack hosted his own first “Game Day” event of 2021-22 season for local students. The second in a series of four "Game Days" was a week later, prior to the West Georgia exhibition game. Partnering again with several regional agencies and launched in 2019 just prior to Covid-19 lockdowns, the program is relatively new.

An extension of a considerable existing commitment to inner-city schools by the Mack Family Foundation, the "Game Day" Program is a direct response to the  financial constraints faced by many families in the Louisville Metro area.  Harsh economic conditions have made the opportunity for K-6 students to attend a live basketball game at the KFC Yum! Center with their parent or guardian financially out of reach for many, so Coach Mack developed a program to provide an entertaining and educational experience for both child and parent or guardian.  "Diverse experiences help young kids grow both academically and personally, so any chance I have to help a student flourish, I'm going to pursue it, period.  The Mack Family Foundation was launched to provide long-term enrichment to disadvantaged elementary students in our community, and this is just one part of that Mission."  Game Day Program students receive in-person time with Coach Mack, tickets to a game, an autographed basketball, and an afternoon of exciting, fun, live sports entertainment.
