Junior Cougar Boys Basketball Clinic

This fall, Mankato East will once again be conducting Cougar Fan Club Basketball Clinic for all interested boys in grades 1 - 6. The clinic will use the varsity basketball players and coaching staff to do the instruction. The emphasis of the clinic will be placed on ball handling, dribbling, pivoting, passing, on-on-one moves, perimeter shots, and free throws. The entire objective of the program is to introduce the boys to the correct fundamentals used in the game of basketball. The clinic offers little opportunity in playing real games. in the time allotted the program, our coaching staff feels it is more important to spend the time teaching proper individual techniques.
