JOLIET, IL – The Joliet Slammers presented by ATI Physical Therapy announce the return of Spikes’ Super Students presented by the University of St. Francis. Spikes’ Super Students is an educational incentive program that encourages students to reach an educational goal set by his or her teacher. Upon reaching the goals, students receive free tickets to Slammers games. 

Both the Joliet Slammers and the University of St. Francis realize how important education is and want to encourage it among the youth of Will, Grundy, and surrounding counties.

“We are extremely excited to be working with the University of St. Francis on this initiative for another year,” said Slammers General Manager Heather Mills. “The program has significantly grown over the past few years and it is a great way to get kids excited about learning.”

Each participating school receives one complimentary appearance by the Slammers mascot Spikes and students receive a free ticket to a Slammers game.

Spikes’ Super Students can be used in the classroom at any time before the end of the school year. For summer programs, it can be used at any time in the summer to help students stay motivated while they are out of the classroom for a few months.

Classrooms, schools, after school programs, libraries, home schools, and more are eligible to participate in the 2017 program. Teachers, program coordinators, or librarians looking for more information should contact the Slammers at 815-722-2287.  Those wishing to sign up for the program can email Heather Mills at hmills@jolietslammers.com
