Free basketball clinic to benefit Food Bank

Shelton head basketball coaches Brian Gardiner (boys) and Joe Cavallaro (girls), along with their coaching staffs, team captains and varsity players will host a free basketball shooting clinic at the Shelton High gym on Monday, Jan. 20, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, from 10 to 11 a.m.

Those grades 1-8 attending will be taught proper fundamentals for shooting and scoring. They will take part in shooting drills, the use of shooting machine, and receive individual attention.

This is a great opportunity to get great instruction, have some fun, and at a very reasonable cost (free).
