The HBA again will organize a fall basketball program for players interested in getting some practice before the winter travel (and rec) season. There will be five weekly practices, consisting of instruction and scrimmaging, beginning the week of Sept. 24. The fee is $65.
The clinics are open to players in Grades 5-8. For players in Grades 4 and younger, the HBA will not sponsor clinics this fall. However there are other programs in the area that run clinics for younger players -- click here for a link.
The Grade 5-8 girls clinics will be overseen by Hopkinton High School girls basketball coach Mike Greco. The Grade 5-8 boys clinics will be run by HHS boys coach Tom Keane.
Below is the schedule.
GRADE 5-8 GIRLS
Mondays, 7:05-8:25 p.m., Brown Gym (starts Sept. 24, ends Oct. 29; no clinic Oct. 8)
GRADE 5-8 BOYS
Wednesdays, 6:35-7:55 p.m., Doyle Gym (starts Sept. 26, ends Oct. 24)
Note change from original schedule. We are combining Grade 5-8 boys and altering the time.
NOTES: Participants should wear a green and white reversible jersey, or if they don't have one then a white or green shirt. All players also should bring a basketball and water bottle -- both with their name on it. Boys Grades 7 and 8 use a full-size (29.5) ball, while all other grades use a 28.5 ball. (We will have a few extra basketballs if you do not own one.)
