This Wednesday, athletes from two different areas will head to the University of New Orleans for a basketball clinic. Coach Mark Slessinger and his team will coach our athletes on the fundamentals of basketball, but will also get the chance to play a game against the UNO athletes!
Athletes that have attended in the past have had a great time and we are expecting another great 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!
