The Lakeland College men's and women's basketball teams will be hosting the inaugural Junior Muskies Clinic for fourth and fifth graders from the surrounding communities.
The Muskies will be running the camp for free for the first 75 students who register. The clinic will take place on Saturday, Jan. 28, from 8-10 a.m. Participants will focus on the fundamentals of the game including shooting, ball handling and passing. There will also be mini-games and contests to enhance the experience.
Following the clinic, the Muskies will sign autographs and interact with the junior Muskies. All campers are invited to watch as Lakeland takes on MSOE with the women starting at 2 p.m. and the men to follow.
"We want our girls to share their passion for the game with the students," said Lakeland head women's basketball coach Lindsey Vande Hoef. "This is a great experience for our girls and it's an opportunity we have to give back to the community. I want our girls to understand that being a Muskie is about more than just being an athlete."
Vande Hoef plans to make the clinic an annual event. "I want this to be something that these students look forward to each year," she said. "I want them to get excited to play and learn from the Muskies and develop a passion for the game."
The women's basketball team will also be going to Sheridan Elementary on Thursday, Jan. 26, for a free clinic for the fourth and fifth graders during their after school activity time.
