Basketball clinic kicks off Kids Club

Dec. 1, 2009

CSUMB athletics kicked off a year-round series of "FUN-damental" sports clinics on Nov. 29 when the men's basketball team worked with young athletes at the Otter Sports Center.

Under the direction of head coach Rob Bishop, youngsters learned proper shooting and dribbling as well as good teamwork skills.

"This was the first of several free clinics we hope to run this year and it was a big success," said head coach Rob Bishop. "We had close to 50 kids. It was a great opportunity for my program to give back to the community.

"Our student-athletes and all the kids involved had a great time."

The free clinics are a benefit of the newly created Otter Pups Kids Club.

Among the other benefits are free admission to all Otters' regular season home games (with a paying adult), a birthday card from the CSUMB mascot Monte Rey and autograph sessions with CSUMB student-athletes.

To receive email notices of upcoming clinics, youngsters can sign up for the Otter Pups Kids Club at
