Kids' Basketball Clinics
Basketball is still a passion to me. I have been conducting a summer camp for the kids here at De La Salle Lipa for the past eight years. Last year, due to insistent demands from friends in Batangas City, we opened our first summer camp at the gym of the University of Batangas. This year we transferred to St. Bridget College. It was also last summer that Mon Araneta of First Gas Power Corporation invited my team of coaches to conduct clinics for kids in the two barangays where they are located as part of their social out-reach. The pictures here are from the clinics we conducted for First Gas.
I believe that footwork is very important in basketball. The very first thing I concentrate on the kids' fundamentals is their feet -- correct running, pivoting, lateral moves, back-pedalling, correct defensive stance. This is do even before teaching them the rudiments of ballhandling. If you're wondering why I still look and feel young -- this is my secret: stay with young people!
