Field Trip Day – Wichita

Watch NBA basketball in Wichita, and provide an educational experience for students! The Oklahoma City Blue, the NBA G League affiliate of the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder, will be playing a Field Trip Day game at InTrust Bank Arena on Wednesday, Feb. 28. This unique game experience pairs the excitement of NBA basketball with an educational focus on STEAM curriculum. We’ll bring lots of entertainment to keep every fan engaged, including Thunder mascot Rumble the Bison, the Thunder Girls dance team, Thunder Drummers and our interactive squad, the Storm Chasers.

Field Trip Day has become a tradition in Oklahoma City for the Blue. Last year, more than 17,000 fans packed the arena in OKC, with school groups, families and other fans coming from all over the state to experience this special game atmosphere. Take a look at last year’s OKC Field Trip Day to see what you can expect in Wichita:

Bus Activity Booklet



“A great big thank you to you! Our faculty and students absolutely loved the game. They had a fantastic time. This was such a wonderful opportunity for our students. I had one little girl get off the bus, hug me, and tell me thank you for allowing them to go … She would never get to experience something like this on her own. We have a high poverty rate in Apache and almost 80 percent of our students qualify for reduced/free lunches. I am so glad we were able to provide this opportunity for them. The consensus is that we would definitely want to do this again.”

 WHAT IS THE OKLAHOMA CITY BLUE?  The Oklahoma City Blue is the NBA G League affiliate of the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Blue plays 50 games every year in a league of 26 teams from the U.S. and Canada. Last year, the Blue finished the regular season with the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference and claimed the Southwest Division title.

WHAT IS FIELD TRIP DAY?  Now an annual tradition in OKC, Field Trip Day allows school groups, families and other fans an opportunity to experience the excitement of NBA basketball in an educational environment. Starting on the bus ride and continuing throughout the game, STEAM facts, videos and activities are shared. During halftime, Thunder mascot Rumble the Bison joins in on a science-themed demonstration on the court.

WHAT SHOULD WE EXPECT?  The Oklahoma City Blue will tip off at 11 a.m.; games typically last 2 1/2 hours. In addition to the STEAM-focused elements and, of course, the basketball game taking place on the court, Thunder entertainers will engage with fans to ensure everyone in attendance has a memorable experience.
