The first session will begin at 9 a.m. and subsequent sessions will be added as demand dictates. The clinic is open to boys and girls in 1st grade and above. Players will receive instruction from two different coaches during the hour-long clinic. The following are among the coaches who have agreed to participate: John Florance, assistant coach, Sacramento City College men, Sterling Forbes, coach, Folsom Force AAU (former Harlem Globetrotter player), Marvin Nakamoto, assistant coach, American River College women and Steve Williams, director, Sly Park Basketball School.
