Clinics reserved for community groups around New Orleans area

July 7, 2011

The New Orleans Hornets announced today that they will host their annual Summer Hoops basketball clinics presented by adidas for selected local organizations throughout the summer. These basketball clinics are closed to the public this year, but will feature fundamental basketball instruction, interaction with Hornets personalities and giveaways for each invited participant.

Our Summer Hoops Clinics allow us to impact the lives of local children, said Hornets Sr. Vice President of Community Investment Steve Martin. We can bring the excitement of a free basketball clinic to young people who may not have the opportunity and provide them with life skills along the way. In addition to our annual Summer Hoops Clinics, we have numerous Hornets Summer Camps available at for kids who are interested in signing up for a Hornets camp this summer.
