Sports: St. Michael's College Women's Basketball Clinics

comment

School-aged girls can prep for this year's basketball season in a new series of skills clinics run by the St. Michael's College women's basketball team. The four-hour sessions run Sunday mornings, September 11 through October 9, and touch on different topics each week, including offense, defense and position play. Small-group, station-based instruction comes from current team members, as well as St. Mike's Head Coach — and UVM Hall of Famer — Jennifer Niebling and Assistant Coach Shannon Kynoch. "It's an opportunity to give back to the game," says Kynoch of the $25 per session clinics. The team members enjoy teaching at St. Mike's summer camps, and these fall clinics give them another chance to show they've mastered their skills by teaching eager young athletes. "It's good for our players," says Kynoch, "and good for the community as well."

St. Michael's College Women's Basketball Skills Clinics: Sundays, September 11, 18, 25 and October 9. $25 per session or $75 for all four. St. Michael's College, 1 Winooski Park, Colchester. Info, 654-2503, facebook.com/SaintMichaelsCollege.
