Knicks Legend John Starks Lends Hand at Clinic

Friday, March 22, 2013

On Thursday, March 14, the Garden of Dreams and New York Knicks produced a basketball clinic for 60 co-ed kids at Foundation partner organization SCO Family of Services in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn. The clinic, which was kicked off with performances by the Knicks City Dancers, taught the kids the fundamentals of basketball. Knicks Legend John Starks was on hand to give personal shooting instruction, while other Knicks clinic coaches ran dribbling, passing, rebounding and conditioning exercises.

Following the performance from the Knicks City Dancers, the children were split up into two groups to participate in the various activities and challenge each other to friendly basketball contests. Each station of the clinic was filled with energy as the children cheered with excitement.

Before exiting the gymnasium, each child received a Garden of Dream gift bag filled with Knicks gifts.
