On Sunday, March 8th, when women around the world are observed for their achievements on International Women’s Day (IWD), the Cavaliers will host a day of activities at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse dedicated to empowering women of all ages. The PowerHouse Dance Team clinic and an all-girls Cavs Academy youth basketball clinic featuring instruction and inspiration from Cavs assistant coach Lindsay Gottlieb will be part of the Cavs IWD celebration prior to the team taking on the San Antonio Spurs at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday’s celebration will tip-off with a Cavs PowerHouse Dance Team clinic from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. More than 80 girls and boys will learn a fun and high-energy dance routine from members of PowerHouse, a competitive-level precision dance team, and will perform the dance pregame on the court.
An all-girls Cavs Academy Youth Basketball clinic will take place from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Seventy-five girls ages 7-17 will participate in the sold-out clinic that will teach fundamental basketball skills then give the players an opportunity to apply what they learned in a scrimmage. Girls attending the clinic will have the special opportunity to hear from Coach Lindsay Gottlieb, the first female coach in the history of the Cavs franchise, who will speak about her background and journey to the NBA.
The Cavs Academy Youth Sports Clinic is part of the Jr. NBA Her Time To Play (HTTP), a national initiative dedicated to helping girls and women participate, connect, collaborate and actively engage with basketball. Sunday’s clinic is fourth of five all-girls clinics hosted by Cavs Academy since 2018, with the final all-girls 3v3 clinic being held at Cleveland Clinic Courts on Saturday, March 21st.

The clinics will be followed by the Cavs vs. San Antonio Spurs game at 7:30 p.m. at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse where the celebration will continue, including:
