The Staten Island Philippine American Group (SIPAG) clinic will start on March 10, 2013 and is open to all boys and girls ages 5-17 years old.

Venue is at the Holy Family Parish Gymnasium located at: 366 Watchogue Road, Staten Island, NY 10314.

The program consists of training camps for boys and girls who are interested in learning, refining and improving their basic basketball skills, and will run from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. every Sunday.

The program is designed to teach sound basketball fundamentals, proper conditioning, application of good sportsmanship, and learn discipline to its participants.

The last five weeks will be geared toward game situations where participants will be divided into teams; not more than eight players in a team (intramural).

Individual performance evaluations and certificates will be handed out at the end of the program.

The program’s major components are:

• Conditioning exercises such as ball handling (dribbling and passing)

• Development of fundamentals (shooting, team play, defensive and offensive concepts)

• Actual game conditions (intramural)
