GREENVILLE – The YMCA of Darke County will welcome coach Thom Townsley of the Indiana Pacers to its Y on Saturday to instruct two shooting clinics for youth ages 8-14
The Greenville shooting clinic will be 9-11 a.m. with a second clinic in Versailles from noon-2 p.m. The fee for the clinic is $20 for members and potential members alike.
Coach Townsley brings more than 25 years coaching experience with players from age 4 to NBA professionals. He has led more than 6,500 clinics worldwide. Kids who attend the clinic can expect to improve their game by learning new skills and working on the fundamentals, like how to execute the proper chest pass and bounce pass. Participants also can expect to work on shooting technique and layups, as well.
“This is a great opportunity for the youth of Darke County to learn professional skills at an easy to understand level. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to share in this basketball experience,” said Tyler Roberts, youth and sports director at the Y.
Registration for the clinic can be made in person at either Y branch, via phone at 548-3777 or 526-4488 or online at https://operations.daxko.com/Online/4055/Programs/Search.mvc.
The Y will have their youth basketball league beginning in January 2016 at both the Greenville and Versailles locations. The league will cover age groups of 4-6 and 7-10. Look for further details to come in December.
