Just a few days after a number of former Indianapolis Colts players will arrive in Hendricks County for a flag football fund-raiser, the Indiana Pacers will sponsor an event for children in Avon that will not only keep them active but teach them basketball skills. The Hendricks Regional Health YMCA will host the Indiana Pacers Fall Skills and Drills Clinic, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., Oct. 21-23. Hendricks Regional Health YMCA The Hendricks Regional Health YMCA provides the perfect setting for this event. I have personally been involved in many events that have taken place at various YMCAs and the Hendricks Regional Health YMCA is one of my favorites. Many people don’t know that if you are a YMCA member, you can visit any YMCA. So, visitors who are YMCA members and may not even be interested in this particular event, should still check out this YMCA while you are in town. It opened through a unique public-private partnership that makes it a little different than traditional YMCAs across the country. As such, it has some amenities that not every YMCA has. But back to the basketball clinic: the best part about it is you don’t have to be a member of the YMCA or a resident of Hendricks County to participate. This basketball clinic will be brought to you by The National Basketball Academy. They offer the nation’s premier basketball clinics with expert coaches to ensure you take your game to the next level. You never know what kinds of situations can come across while you are playing basketball. With experts coaching you in this clinic they will assure you that the skills you learn will adequately fine tune your skills for many various situations during the game. The event is for both boys and girls ages 6-17. Participants will receive a T-shirt and free ticket to see an Indiana Pacers game. clinic logoThe National Basketball Academy is sure to bring many exciting contests, great giveaways, special surprises and great memories!
