NORWALK, Conn. ? Young Norwalk basketball players can work on improving their game at a series of clinics lead by Norwalk High basketball coach Tom Keyes and his Brien McMahon counterpart, Ken Dustin.
The free sessions for Norwalk boys in sixth grade will begin Wednesday, Oct. 3, and run through mid-October. They are sponsored by the Norwalk Youth Basketball Association.
This is a great opportunity for us to teach basketball skills at an early age to players who might play for us one day, said Keyes, who is entering his second year at Norwalk High and spent this past summer working at Fairfield Universitys Sidney Johnson Basketball Camp.
There are many talented young players in Norwalk and these clinics give us an opportunity to teach these young men important fundamentals and also communicate to them that school comes first,'' added Dustin, who is entering his first season as the head basketball coach at McMahon.
The clinics will focus on the development of individual and team skills and help players prepare for the coming season. They will take place at various middle schools, and the two coaches will be assisted by high school players and the youth basketball coaching staff.
Players can register through the basketball association's website www.norwalkhoops.org clicking on the NYBA Clinic Registration tab and following the password-protected process.
