CO-ED BASKETBALL CLINIC


Clinics will take place on the campus of Eastern Mennonite University (at Yoder Arena) and will be orchestrated by the EMU men’s and women’s basketball programs including their coaches and players. This will increase the quality of instruction, provide a much better player to coach ratio and a perfect facility to foster basketball skills development. The clinics will be from 9-10:30am except on October 16th, it will be held from 11am-12:30pm. This will be the only clinic for ages 5-7 offered (no Winter clinic). All participants will receive a shirt.
