UNO Basketball Clinic

A few weeks back, 16 of our athletes we invited to the University of New Orleans practice facility for a basketball clinic.  The UNO men’s basketball team and Head Coach Mark Slessinger put our athletes through different basketball skills.  After, our athletes were allowed into the locker room and film room to see where the team gets ready for the big game.  Then, each SOLA athlete was paired with a UNO athlete and were introduced onto the court inside the Lakefront Arena where the Privateers compete!

Thank You to the UNO basketball team, Coach Slessinger and the Athletic Department at the University of New Orleans!
