Thanks to the Dept of Youth, Sports & Recreation and its National Junior Athlete Sponsorship Program, the BBA was able to bring in Coach Jamaal Jackson, Head Coach for the men’s team at Kentucky State University, an NCAA Division II HBCU.

The intent of the clinic was to introduce players to basketball training at the next level. Players were shown new aspects to the fundamentals of basketball ie. ball handling, shooting and passing. They were also shown some of the team strategies used on offense and defence.
