Pleasantville, NY- The Pace Women's Basketball program hosted a free girls basketball clinic for the local community this morning in the Goldstein Health and Fitness Center. Over 60 girls ranging in age from eight to fourteen participated in the clinic. Each participant was able to attend the clinic from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm then stay to watch the women's basketball team practice while eating pizza in the bleachers.
The women's basketball team along with Head Coach Carrie Seymour was thrilled with the response from the community. "Today was a great day, to have over 60 youth basketball players participate was awesome, our team really enjoyed the experience and we hope all of the girls are able to attend some of our home games in the next few weeks" stated Seymour.
