Jr. Drew League Hosts Clinics to Serve LA Community

Throughout the Drew League season, the Jr. Drew League, a weekly youth basketball clinic for boys and girls ages 11-12 years, is held upstairs at King Drew HS. Led by Keion Kindred and LaSandra Dixon, the clinics serve children from the South L.A. community and teach them all the fundamentals of the game from dribbling, passing, shooting and teamwork. On the day of the Drew League Championship game, there’s a showcase game for both boys and girls at LA Southwest College. The Jr. Drew League also hosted a clinic with 5-Eleven Hoops, a non-profit basketball program for individuals with Autism and special needs, in late July. Professional basketball players like Cappie Pondexter, Jordin Canada and Aaron Brooks have also been guest speakers to let participants know what kind of work it takes to make it to the highest level.
