Warrior Girls Blog - 3 

Posted by Sasha at 10:13 PM ET

Meet the blogger: Alexis is currently in her second year with the Warrior Girls, the ultra-talented 16-member dance team of the Golden State Warriors. Throughout the season, Alexis will blog about her experiences with the team. 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.

Big Week Ahead
Monday, November 26
Golden State Warriors

Although our players had a rough start to their season, the Warrior Girls and I never lost hope. Our win against the Clippers on Nov. 16 was very exciting and it seemed to give the team momentum for the recently completed road trip. And just because our players have recently been on a long journey back East, that doesn’t mean we Warrior Girls had any time off.

We spent all of Sunday at a photo shoot for our new poster and Web site photos, which will be put up in the near future. Our "Glam Squad" was there as always to get us ready, and the photographers at Pro Image in Dublin made the whole day a lot of fun!

We’ve still been practicing hard and getting our routines prepared for this week’s busy schedule of home games. Thursday will mark our 2008 Calendar Release Party! The unveiling of the second-annual swimsuit calendar will take place prior to Thursday’s tip-off in the Club 200 Lounge and Sports Bar simultaneously. This event will be truly exciting because we actually still don’t know what shots were used for the calendar or who will be on the cover. We’ll be finding that out at the same time as you, the fans.

After the official unveiling, all members of the dance squad will be on hand in the Lounge and Sports Bar to meet with fans and sign calendars. Last year was a lot of fun so we hope to see everyone there for the special day! And by the way, this event is free to the public with admission to the game, so we’re hoping for a large turnout.

We have another fun event set for Dec. 8 with the Warrior Girls Dance Clinic. We’ll have two sessions, one for kids (ages 5-12) and another for adults (13 and older), and we’ll be teaching you our actual routines that we perform during the season. This event should be a lot of fun, so I hope to see you out there. All skill levels are welcome to sign up.

On behalf of the Warrior Girls and myself, we hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. We are thankful to all of our fans for their support!
