JU hosts basketball coaching clinic
With the start of basketball practice just over a week away, JU head men’s basketball coach Cliff Warren held his second annual “Coaches Clinic” on Saturday.
More than 50 coaches from the surrounding area attended the event, including former JU head coach Tates Locke and JU alum Artis Gilmore, watching the Dolphins go through a practice session – including offensive shooting, passing and dribbling, as well as defensive drills.
Following the session, coaches went through a question and answer period with the JU coaching staff.
Several coaches from outside the area took tours of the Arlington campus, exposing them to the entire University for the first time.
Following lunch, most of the coaches hung around for a social hour – exchanging ideas and talking basketball while also learning more about the history of JU, the program and the city from some of the veteran coaches.
“Every year, we look to make the coaches clinic bigger and better,” Warren said. “We had a great turnout this year and look forward to enhancing the event for everyone in the coming years.”
