Read is back for the fall!
South Carolina Athletics would like to invite you to participate in fall’s 2021 Read with the Gamecocks presented by EdVenture. We’re excited to be a part of encouraging your students to know the importance of literacy.
What is Read with the Gamecocks?
Read with the Gamecocks is an incentive-based reading program developed by South Carolina Athletics to promote the importance of literacy in elementary and middle school-aged students.
Note: due to NCAA compliance regulations, only students in grades K – 8 are allowed to participate.
Through Read with the Gamecocks, we encourage elementary and middle school teachers to challenge their students to keep a log of all reading done outside of the classroom over a two-week period. In an effort to have this program better fit classroom goals and curriculum, teachers will set their own goals for their classrooms (ex: number of pages, number of books, number of minutes read). Every student that reaches their classroom goal will receive a voucher for two tickets (one student, one guardian) to one Gamecock men’s basketball game and one Gamecock women’s basketball game. Teachers that participate in the program will also receive a voucher for two tickets to both basketball games.
