MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Head coach Maurice Smith and the Georgia College women’s basketball hosted the Third Annual Stair South Basketball Clinic over the holiday weekend.

A large number of kids from the community attended the clinic, with various Bobcat players and coaches in charge of different stations, each one focusing on a different skill.

“The Stair South Clinic is a great opportunity to reach out to the youth in the community, “said coach Smith. “It’s a great opportunity for the coaches and players to interact with the youth in a positive way by providing basic basketball instruction along with one-on-one attention. It’s important to us because we look at it as a privilege whenever we can engage our collegiate athletic program with the Milledgeville community and other surrounding areas.”
