Boca Raton bringing together COBRAs and PANTHERs

BOCA RATON – It may seem quite unusual to match up a “Cobra” and a “Panther.”  But that is about to take place in Boca Raton! 

 The Boca Raton Athletics Department has planned a special event for Saturday, July 16, from 5-8 p.m. at Sanborn Square in downtown Boca to acquaint  the public  with its new sports program,— COBRA.

 The department has partnered with the Florida Panthers for this special family event as part of the Florida Panthers Blueprint Parks “We See Red” tour. 

 Along with COBRA information and activities shared by city athletic staff, the Panthers Patrol will bring along their inflatables, interactive games, Panther face painters, live music, giveaways and other activities to complete a “sports-fun” experience. 

 Special appearances by the Panthers Ice Dancers, Stanley C. Panther and other Panthers personalities will add to the event’s activities.

 The new city-operated program COBRAhas been organized by the entire staff of the Athletics Department, all of whom are certified youth sports administrators, to take on the responsibility of teaching and coaching youth teams in several sports.  The branded name, COBRA, represents the City Of Boca Raton Athletics, distinguishing its programs from non-city-operated sports programs.

 The event in Boca’s Sanborn Square is just one of four “We See Red” summer park tours by the Florida Panthers.  It is open to the public and offers free entrance, with optional food purchases.
