“Its Her Shot” event in Plano

Dick’s Sporting Goods and Nike are joining forces to hold an event in Plano featuring WNBA stars according to a WFAA article from October 27. They say,  


“On Saturday, Oct. 29, DICK’S Sporting Goods and Nike are teaming together to host “It’s Her Shot” with appearances by WNBA Dallas Wings stars Allisha Gray and Satou Sabally, and three-time WNBA MVP, legend Sheryl Swoopes.


This is the first time “It’s Her Shot” will be held in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The event, which debuted in 2021 on the famous street courts of Venice, has recently returned to Los Angeles, Chicago, Minneapolis, New York and Washington, D.C. 


Attendees can expect to participate in “courtside chats” with talent, including professional basketball players and coaches. There will be pickup games, skills clinic, shooting contests, prizes and giveaways.”


Recently, Dallas has become a hotspot for WNBA players to showcase their skill in AU Basketball League, getting even the attention of Lexie Brown for the second time in a row according to a WFAA article which says, 


“Lexie Brown is back for a second year of the Athletes Unlimited basketball league after having a great experience in the inaugural season.


She is one of 15 players with significant WNBA experience already signed on to play in the league that will run from Feb. 22 to March 26 in Dallas.


“I would say Dallas was attractive to us since we have a relationship with the Dallas Sports Commission,” said Ilene Hauser, who is the Director of Basketball. “AU volleyball has been playing there the last two years. Dallas is a hotbed for girls and women’s basketball… We have a number of players that have ties to the state of Texas. A few of them to Dallas and that’s a huge draw for us.” 


So it is no surprise that both Dick’s Sporting Goods and Nike have arrived in Dallas to sponsor an event. It’s Her Shot will be on a first-come, first-served basis and it will be a free admission for girls of 8 to 18 years old.
