by Brian DeCandia, Sports Information Graduate Assistant

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College women’s basketball program will be hosting a free clinic for kids in the community Dec. 29 from 9-10:30 a.m. at the Centennial Center. 

“This is a great opportunity for our program to reach out to kids in the community,” said head coach Maurice Smith. “It gives the children a chance to interact with our student-athletes and gives our players a chance to give back to the community. 

The free basketball clinic will include children in the community from ages six to 12. The clinic will split into different stations incorporating drills to help young children learn the fundamentals of basketball. These drills will include but are not limited to shooting, dribbling and passing.  

Georgia College begins their regular-season slate against Anderson University (S.C) Friday, Nov. 11 at the Centennial Center beginning at 7 p.m.
