2ND ANNUAL DOGWOOD AREA COACHES CLINIC
Pre-registration is now open for boys ages 13-16 from the Anderson County area to participate in the second annual Dogwood Area Coaches Clinic.
The clinic offers area boys a chance to compete against one another and learn from area varsity basketball coaches, while also serving as a tryout of sorts for the 76ers Summer Youth Basketball Team.
The 76ers, which was formally administered by the Palestine YMCA, is now under the direction of SIXERinc., a non-profit organization run by Palestine native Jonathan Cary.
The clinic is free of charge, and will be April 16 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Palestine Middle School.
Free food and drinks will be available, and the clinic will be open for the public to come watch.
Players or parents interested in the clinic should e-mail Jasminn Moore at email@example.com
Also, to learn about sponsoring the event, contact Cary at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 832-524-4948.
SIXERinc., will also have an information meeting at noon Saturday at Ben E. Keith for anyone interested in learning more about the organization.
SIXERinc.’s Jasminn Moore said the group wants community leaders and the community as a whole to hear the story about the group’s mission and goals.
