Shoot some hoops in Central Park every Saturday from April through October. From 12 noon until 2PM, all young basketball lovers are invited to check out the free clinics at the North Meadow Rec Center.
The program is high energy and gives kids a great opportunity to learn the game if they are a beginner or enhance their skills if they already know the basics. Drills, exercises and scrimmage games are main components of the clinic. Kids will also learn sportsmanship, defense, offense, dribbling and foot work.
Clinics are free of charge and open to players of all abilities, aged 9 to 17.
Clinic participants will also have the opportunity to compete in Youth Basketball Tournaments from May 7 - June 21, 2012.
