From her community service events to practices to the games themselves, Alexis will provide fans with a unique and inside look at the Warrior Girls.

Opening Night Excitement
Thursday, November 1
Golden State Warriors

It was a lot of work preparing for Opening Night. This past week we’ve had extended practice hours and harder rehearsals. The night before the opening we had practice at ORACLE Arena so we could set out routines on the court in order to be fully prepared for Tuesday. As the evening approached we were nervous and anxious, but mostly excited to get the show started!

As I arrived at the arena at around 5 p.m., I could already feel the energy. We practiced on the court one last time and then returned to the locker room so our “glam squad” could do our hair and make-up. At 7:30, after the national anthem, the lights went off and we went up to the stands to get ready for the player intros. I had chills during the video and when the words "We’re Back" came onto the video screen, it finally hit me that our season had officially begun!

All of the entertainment ensembles for the night performed great! Even though we didn’t win the game, the night was still successful. The rest of the Warriors Girls and I look forward to the remainder of the season so we can continue to provide our fans with Great Time Outs!
