The Lakers Youth Foundation is dedicated to promoting youth basketball and teaching children how to stay fit for life. We are proud to offer local organizations the opportunity to host a free basketball clinic or fitness clinic for children in their neighborhood. The clinics are designed to be interactive, make physical fitness fun, and teach kids how to stay active and healthy.

Our clinics are open to boys and girls ages 8-17. No prior basketball experience is necessary to participate in our basketball clinics. Children will be shown the fundamentals of the game, such as passing, ball handling, shooting, and rebounding. In our fitness clinics, children will perform exercise and fitness activities focused on improving their agility, balance/body mechanics, cardiovascular endurance and strength. All participants will learn the importance of proper nutrition, hydration, and how to prevent injuries.
