Whittell free kids’ hoops clinics start Sunday

Kids between the ages of 5 and 13 can receive free basketball lessons every Sunday starting this week.

Whittell basketball will host Sunday Xcel for six consecutive Sundays, starting Jan. 11.

The free sessions will be from 3 to 4 p.m. for the 5 to 7 age group and 4 to 5 p.m. for the 8-13 age groups. The 8-13 age group will be divided in to separate groups depending on player ability.

This is an opportunity for kids to advance their skills and learn from boys and girls head coach Phil Bryant, who has won several championships over 40 years.

Drills will include ball handling, footwork, passing, shooting, defensive positioning and the importance of team play while emphasizing individual improvement.

For information, contact Bryant at 530-518-8588.
