No fewer than 600 kids are presently taking part in the 2014 edition of Mark D Ball basketball clinic, an official has said.
The coordinator of the programme, Obande
Ogbole told Daily Trust on Saturday at the Otukpo basketball arena that the kids were drawn from all over the country.
"There are above 600 kids here up from 300 last year," he said.
The clinic is divided into two categories, the
teenagers and the minors.
The Programme coordinator who said there won't be any coach from the USA to train the kids this year, expressed confidence in the ability of the local ones.
"This year, no international coach is coming
because of the political situation in the country
but the local coaches will do well."
He said since the inception of the programme,
tons of kids have been identified and moved up
the basketball ladder.
"At the just concluded Milo basketball
championship, all the kids of Jesus College of
Otukpo who won the competition in #Lagos, came from &39;Mark D Ball&39;," Ogbole noted.
He also added that a lot of the kids identified at
&39;Mark D Ball&39; have travelled out to pursue their
carrier in basketball.
Basically, the kids at this year&39;s edition will be
taught the basics of basketball which includes
shooting, blocking, passing, movement on the
ball, guarding amongst others.
The clinic which started Saturday afternoon, 27th December 2014 will end on Wednesday 31st December, 2014.
