Jr. Celtics Have All-Star Handles
Date: February 6, 2016
This is one guy you’d want to teach you ball handling skills. All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas and teammate Jae Crowder hosted a basketball skills clinic at Madison Park High School on February 6, 2016, as part of Jr. Celtics, the team’s annual youth development program. “Today we went over the basics, dribbling, shooting, effective defensive stances, as well as the importance of taking care of your body,” Thomas said. “At the end, the kids all had smiles on their faces and that is what it is all about!” The Jr. Celtics program had been active since 2011 and hosted more than 800 elementary school-aged children in developing on-court skills and leadership training.
