UCLA To Host The Prime Time Games


UCLA will host “Championship Saturday” as the 6th annual Prime Time Games take place on May 30 from 8am to 1pm on the Westwood campus. In these games, Team Prime Time, a local Los Angeles after school organization, is holding their annual tournament to decide the program’s soccer and basketball champions.

The event will include the help of several UCLA student-athletes as well as an opening ceremony lead by legendary UCLA basketball player and current assistant coach, Tyus Edney.

As per their website, the mission of Team Prime Time “is to provide intervention programs for at-risk children from low-income areas of Los Angeles that combine academics, athletics, leadership training and the arts in order to prepare them for them for the future and allow them to reach their full potential.”

What Team Prime Time does is pair student mentors and students with developmental disabilities (“coaches” and “athletes”, respectively) to learn the fundamentals of soccer, football and basketball as well as team play.

This weekend UCLA will host The Games as the middle school soccer tournament will take place on the North Athletic Field while the Varsity Games, the high school basketball competition, takes place in the Student Activities Center.

All of these students have put in a lot of time and have made it through a full season playing against other schools, but now it is time to decide a champion as Championship Saturday is upon us! Go Team Prime Time!
