2018 Utica College Men's Basketball Clinic

On Saturday, December 15th the Oneida County Youth Bureau in partnership with the Utica College Men’s Basketball program offered a FREE clinic for youth ages 8-17 in the Todd & Jen Hutton Recreation Center. This third year endeavor reached 110 participants, both boys and girls, giving the kids a safe and enthusiastic environment to have fun and learn. Over a 3 year span the Utica College Men’s Basketball program have given back, through volunteerism, to over 425 Oneida County youth!

Utica College Head Basketball Coach Sean Coffey stated, “opportunities like this clinic for our young Utica College student-athletes are exactly what we strive to do for our community.” Participants were drilled on defensive positioning and movement, shooting technique, ball handling skills and much more! All along, the UC players were instructing each group of children with energy and genuine excitement.

At the conclusion of the clinic youth were treated to an autograph session from the UC players. This event, once again was a huge success and we would like to thank Coach Sean Coffey, his players and Utica College Athletic Director Dave Fontaine for hosting this very positive and inspiring opportunity for Oneida County’s youth!
