The Sky partnered with Northwestern University to host a youth basketball clinic on Sunday at the Welsh-Ryan Arena on the Northwestern University campus. 135 boys and girls worked with members of the Sky and Northwestern on their basketball fundamentals.
The kids had a great time and it was great to have a wide range of age groups participate, said Julie Bielawski, youth basketball coordinator for the Chicago Sky.
After the on-court instruction, the kids enjoyed a pizza party and were able to participate in a question & answer session with members of the Sky and Wildcats. The youth completed the day by watching the Northwestern Wildcat Women take on Michigan State in what was also the teams annual Senior Day celebrations. All clinic participants will also attend the 2012 Chicago Sky home opener against the Indiana Fever on Friday, May 25 at 7:30 pm.
The Sky will hold its next youth basketball clinic at the Arlington Heights Park District on March 31 from 10:00am to 12:00pm. For more information or to register for the clinic visit chicagosky.net or contact Julie Bielawski at 312-994-5990 or email@example.com.
