In attendance were over 100 Jr. Clippers representing all 12 Jr. Clippers sites: Normandia, Shatto, Rosecrans, Humbert Humphrey, LACES, Robertson, Alpine, Rancho Cienega, Nickerson, Imperial, Jordan Downs and EXPO Center. Smith and Coach Pack talked to the Jr. Clippers about basketball fundamentals, the importance of fair play and sportsmanship and held a Question & Answer session at the clinic.

All Jr. Clippers in attendance received books other items as part of the Clippers Read to Achieve program.

Now in its eleventh season the Clippers program works exclusively with inner city children ages 5 to 16 to promote the fundamentals of basketball, sportsmanship and athletics as an alternative to negative influences. Additionally, the program helps to alleviate some of the costs extended to inner city families participating in the LACRP City Wide Basketball League. The program tips-off in January and runs through March, culminating with an early April tournament.
