On February 21st the kids in our Upward Basketball League got to be a Raptor for the day. Instead of playing an Upward Basketball game that Tuesday the kids in our league were treated to a ‘Learn to Dribble’ clinic held by the Toronto Raptors. It was an exciting night for all!
The night started off with the clinic coaches talking to the kids about DREAM – an acronym for Dedication, Responsibility, Education, Attitude, and Motivation. The coaches shared important lessons on being a winner both on and off the court. The kids then received a free Raptors t-shirt and wristband and were split up into groups. The groups rotated through 5 different stations that focused on dribbling, shooting, passing, rebounding, and defense.
Both players and parents had a great night. A big thank you to the Toronto Raptors for coming and putting on this event! Let’s go Raptors!!!
