Junior Eagle Basketball Clinics Set
On January 9th, January 16th, January 23rd, and February 6th, the Nebraska Christian Boys’ Basketball team and Coach Leonard will be hosting a series of basketball clinics for all students in grades 1-6 from 10:00-11:30 A.M. at the Nebraska Christian Gymnasium. There is no charge for these clinics.
The junior eagles will be instructed on the various fundamentals of basketball; they will learn skills such as footwork, passing, dribbling, and shooting. The junior eagles will also get to showcase what they learned in front of an audience. The students who are in grades 1-4 who attend the clinics will play during the half-time of the first home varsity basketball game, and the students in grades 5-6 who attend the clinics will play during the half-time of the second home varsity basketball game during each of the Eagles’ home basketball contests.
“Fundamentals are such a key ingredient to becoming a successful basketball player. The more fundamentals our elementary students can get at a young age will prove beneficial when they begin to play junior high and high school basketball,” said Coach Leonard.
The basketball clinics are a great chance for the junior eagles to learn some basketball fundamentals and cultivate their interest in basketball. We pray that the students can do their best at the clinics and their games and stay injury-free.
