Players in grades 3 to 7 invited to improve skills
Tyrone Searight, who coaches the Haldane girls’ varsity basketball team, and Joe Virgadamo, who coaches the boys, will co-host a free clinic for boys and girls in grades three to seven who would like to improve their skills with an assist from members of both varsity squads.
The clinic is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 15, at the Haldane Middle School gym in Cold Spring. The girls start at 2 p.m. and the boys at 3:45 p.m. The event is free although donations are welcome.
The Philipstown Recreation Department also hosts weekly sessions for young players to work on their game. John Froats organizes an hour-long session on Mondays at 6:15 p.m. for boys and girls in grades three to eight and Jeff McDaniel oversees girls’ 3-on-3 basketball for grades three to six on Thursdays at 4 p.m.
Both take place at the Community Center gym off Route 9D in Garrison. The cost is $1 per session for residents and $3 for non-residents.
