At the recent 4th Annual Challenger Clinic, Conestoga boys’ and girls’ basketball players shared their basketball knowledge as well as their passion for the game with more than 32 special needs players.
Conestoga High School’s main gym was buzzing with energy as the Conestoga basketball teams welcomed more than 32 special needs kids participating in the recent 4th Annual Challenger Clinic. Conestoga boys’ and girls’ basketball players shared their basketball knowledge as well as their passion for the game with the special needs players.
During the two-hour clinic, the Conestoga players served as coaches for the special needs players as they practiced skills and drills, and played on teams with these special athletes for 2-on-2, 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 games.
The Challenger Clinic, an annual event started by Conestoga parents Carlos and Theresa Vila, and Sandra Vandeventer, is open to youth with special needs in grades 1-12, from T/E and surrounding communities. The dates for the 5th Annual Challenger Clinic will be announced at the start of the 2018-19 Conestoga basketball season.
