Children under the ages of 10 and 15 would have the opportunity to meet NBA star, David West, at an innovative coaching clinic to train and mentor them.
The clinic, which is slated for August 15, would be held at the University of Ghana basketball courts at Legon.
David West, a player of Golden State Warriors, is expected to lead the coaching clinic and would be supported by basketball professionals, T.J. Warren of the Phoenix Suns and Rasual Butler of the San Antonio Spurs, as well as leading coaches from Ghana.
According to Africa All Access (AAA), the organisers of the clinic, the event is expected to bring together talented players from the various regions of the country for a day of instruction and personal interaction with the NBA players.
The AAA added that the clinic would also include a “Solutions HUB” which will showcase new technologies as part of a holistic approach to engage the young players.
