GRAYBEARDS Host Basketball Clinic

GRAYBEARDS Host Basketball Clinic

Last Friday night in the gym at St. Francis de Sales, over 100 kids enjoyed a free basketball "Coaches" Clinic. Those in attendance were treated to lectures by three varsity head coaches from the CHSAA, who donated their time to this Graybeard sponsored event.  Tim Leary, St. Francis Prep, Jack Alessi, Xaverian and Don Kent, McClancy gave informative talks to an enthusiastic crowd.

At the end of the lectures, a free raffle was held with six kids winning basketballs and two kids winning a week at the summer basketball camps run by the coaches.  Special thanks to Graybeard, Dan Leary for making the arrangements needed to put this entertaining evening together for the kids and for opening the evening with his interesting remarks. Thanks also to Jim McKeon, CYO Director, for rescheduling his intramural games to make room for this event.  

Finally, the Graybeards want to especially thank the coaches for giving so generously of their time and for donating raffle prizes of scholarships to their basketball summer camps.
