Bring Your Kids To A NY Liberty Game! #ShowUp @NYLiberty @KidzVuz #Ad

NY Liberty


    Last week my family had the pleasure of going to see a NY Liberty game at Madison Square Garden.  Although we are native New Yorkers, we don’t often get to go cheer on our home teams due to our everyday work and school schedules.  Thankfully, the summertime is the perfect time to share these activities together.  

    My husband, father in law and son all decided that they would go see the game together since they are all huge basketball fans.  It was so sweet to see three generations of the men in this family heading out to watch the NY Liberty do their thing.  The Liberty have qualified for the WNBA Playoffs in 13 of its 19 years.  This is a fact that my son won’t let me forget.

    Led by Head Coach Bill Laimbeer, the Liberty are determined to improve on last year’s performance with top WNBA talent like Tina Charles, Epiphanny Prince and Essence Carson, veterans like Swin Cash and Tanisha Wright, as well as new faces in rookies Kiah Stokes and Brittany Boyd.  It’s so exciting to introduce my son to legendary female basketball players to add to the list of male players that he already admires.

    Our tickets included pre-game shoot around access.  My family had the opportunity to enter the arena to watch the players warm up an hour before the doors opened to the public.  My husband loved being able to see both teams warming up on each side of the court before the game and witnessing their routines and repetitions.  He shared with me that these skills are what keeps them in the top of their game.

    The NY Liberty defeated the Seattle Storm that evening and my guys were all smiles when they came home.  It was the perfect way to spend some quality time together as a family.  The team thrives on the crowd’s energy, and the fans leave the arena inspired by the game and these world-class athletes. For comprehensive coverage of the Liberty, check out all season!

    My kids would absolutely LOVE to do this! Especially watching the players warm up and pre-game shoot around access!! Sounds like a great family night.

  2. That would be so much fun. We attend the Magic games here and we love it. Need to visit NYC soon =)

  3. Love it!!! I grew up playing basketball but it’s the main professional sport that Kansas City doesn’t have… (But we’re World Series Champions, so it’s all good!) My family and I are very in to supercross and have been able to get VIP passes to the race in Dallas twice. My oldest son LOVED it! Can’t wait to take my 4 year old! Such great memories!

  4. Looks like you guys had a great time! Me and my kids went to a basketball game a while ago and it was super fun!

  5. It looks like you and your family had a really good time! I’ve never been to a basketball game. Looks like fun, though.

  6. Going to live sporting events is such great family fun. We love to go to soccer games together as a family.

  7. It looks like you had a wonderful time! I’ve yet to take my littles to any basketball games but I just know that they would love it.

  8. Such a fun way to spend time with the family. We love going to sporting events too, but I’ve never been to Madison Square Garden. I’d certainly love to someday though!

  9. Ooooh – that looks like SUCH a blast! I would love to attend a game – anywhere! Getting Cavs tickets (I’m from CLE) is almost impossible unless I rob a bank, so I just dream of attending games! Or live vicariously through others!

  10. You can’t get that same feeling over the TV. The excitement in person is like nothing else! Everyone should go at least once.

  11. Sounds like fun! I’ve never been to a game at Madison Square Garden but I’m going to a baseball game soon so I’m really excited for that!

  12. What a fun outing! I love basketball and would love to see a game in person. It must have thrilled all the boys, big and small.

  13. That sounded like so much fun. It’s nice that you were able to watch the pre game warmups. Madison Square Garden is one of the coolest places to watch games.

  14. You guys looked like you had a lot of fun.
    I like your pictures.

  15. What a fun experience to have with kids. Love that so much, I will look into this!

  16. We love watching basketball games. We do watch our very own Wizards (Washington DC NBA) games and we enjoy it so much every time we go!

  17. I’m not really into regular basketball, but my whole family enjoys wheelchair basketball. It’s definitely better in person.

  18. Such a great idea! I have yet to take my littles to a live sporting event.

  19. My Bella loves basketball and she would love it we haven’t taken her to a actual basketball game before but maybe next summer we will go. We had macguster visit otsego and Bella loved when they visited.
    Looks like it was a great day for you guys.

  20. This sounds like a great family outing for persons who are interested in that sport. Looks like everyone had a great deal of fun…#familymatters

    My kids would love to do this! I bet this made their day. Great job, mama!

  22. We’d love to see anything at Madison Square Garden – have never seen an event there! Looks like the game was a fun one!

  23. I think my kids are a little young, but I can’t wait till they are older so we can enjoy these types of things as a family. It looks like fun!

  24. So glad that it was a good game, I have never been to a basketball event. What a great way to bond as a family though!

  25. There’s nothing like watching a game live and it brings families closer together! It’s an awesome quality time, especially if the family is complete. I think it’s amazing that you were able to bring your father in law as well. It was one memorable game for sure!

  26. This looks like a great way to spend time with the family. We love going to sporting events.

  27. Looks like you had a good time. I’ve never been to a WNBA game! I don’t think there’s a team where I grew up though.

  28. Neely (@Neelykins) says

    Sporting events are super fun. When I was growing up I loved going.

  29. This would be so much fun! We don’t have too many teams around here to go to, but we go to baseball games ALL the time!

  30. I’m from Australia and have never been there but have heard about it so many times in movies! I’d love to go there one day. 🙂

  31. This is a wonderful way to spend time with family! Even though I honestly never really got into sports that much, I know that my husband would love this since he loves basketball!

  32. My kids love to go to live sporting events with their dad. It’s been dad time for years.

  33. CourtneyLynne says

    Ooooooo now this looks like a total blast!!!! Basketball is my all time favorite sport!!! I’m sure my daughter would love this as well.
