[WARWICK, RI - Friday, July 10] — The Kent County YMCA today announced that it will host a basketball clinic beginning July 28 led by University of Rhode Island’s famed alum, Kyle Ivey-Jones, for boys’ ages 9-12 looking to further their basketball skills.

“We’re excited to welcome players on our new outdoor basketball courts,” said Bob Cioffi, Executive Director at the Kent County YMCA in Warwick, Rhode Island. “This is a one-of-a-kind experience to learn from an industry pro like Kyle.”

Clinics will begin Tuesday, July 28 and will be offered twice a week for four weeks. Pricing is $80 for Y members and $120 for non-Y members.

SESSION I (Ages 9 & 10) Tuesdays & Thursdays 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM
SESSION II (Ages 10 & 12) Tuesdays & Thursdays 10:30 AM to 12:00 NOON

Participants will work toward becoming better players by learning basketball fundamentals and practicing drills while focusing on positive values that the Y is known for. They’ll also have the opportunity to learn shooting, ball handling, and defensive skills. “Children will be kept in stable groups of 10 with one to two coaches,” said Cioffi. “We’re asking them to bring their own ball, water, and snacks. Hand sanitizers will be available on all courts.”

Registration is now open with limited availability. Visit www.bookaspot.org to sign up today.
