Council President Salvatore to Host Free Youth Basketball Clinic
Providence City Council President David A. Salvatore is partnering with the Providence College men’s and women’s basketball teams and the Providence Recreation Department to host a free youth basketball clinic at Corliss Park on Thursday, July 12, 2018 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
“As a former basketball player and a die-hard Friars fan, this is my favorite event of the year,” stated David A. Salvatore, Providence City Council President. “For the past six years, we have offered this free clinic to provide our youth with a chance to learn from competitive collegiate athletes. I believe this helps college players make deeper connections in our community; they quickly become role models to these young athletes, inspiring them to excel in school and sports. I can’t wait to get on the court next Thursday!”
The youth basketball clinic is open to all residents of Providence, and due to NCAA rules and regulations, collegiate players and coaches can only work with girls entering the ninth grade and younger and boys entering the seventh grade and younger.
