Summer Youth Basketball Clinics to Feature Legendary Kings as Expert Coaches
Vlade, Peja, C-Webb and More will Join Select Junior Kings Clinics
Sacramento, Calif. – This summer, the Sacramento Kings youth basketball program – Junior Kings – will feature Kings Legends as guest coaches at the region’s premier youth clinics. Seven clinics, starting with a special May 13 Mother’s Day clinic featuring Monarchs Legend Ruthie Bolton, will provide children ages 6-14 a unique opportunity to learn fundamental basketball skills, teamwork, and self-esteem from many fan-favorites, as well as the best local coaches and trainers.
“Junior Kings clinics certainly teach some of the basic skills that keep kids active and healthy, promote teamwork, and create friendships - but they are also designed to allow kids to have a whole lot of fun,” said Kings Vice President of Community Impact Scott Moak. “And to have these Kings Legends back in Sacramento, involved with Jr. Kings this summer is such a treat for the kids, their families and the community."
Through Junior Kings leagues, camps, clinics and special events, the Sacramento Kings continue to invest in the region by promoting health and wellness with area kids in a positive and safe environment. Special events like the upcoming Mother’s and Father’s Day clinics provide parents, family members and friends to share in the fun and join the young athletes to build their basketball skills together.
