SAN ANTONIO – The Spurs Sports Academy is offering virtual basketball clinics to children starting on July 13, a press release said.
Young athletes will be able to improve their basketball skills while maintaining social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic during the week long clinics. The clinics are available to kids ages 6 to 15.
According to the press release, the clinics will provide instruction to players by helping them learn fundamentals.
“While we anxiously await to safely return on the court, and see our new and returning campers, we are excited to roll out a new virtual way to connect and engage with our young athletes,” said Joe Clark, Vice President of Youth Sports and Fan Experience at Spurs Sports & Entertainment. “We hope this new platform will enable them to remain active while homebound.”
The drills will teach positive values and be done through both live and recorded sessions, the press release said.
Spurs Sports Academy said the virtual clinics will feature guest appearances, including Spurs TV analysts and former players Matt Bonner and Sean Elliott, as well as sessions with Train the Mind, and live Q&As with Spurs camp coaches.
