Calling all Mothers, Daughters (and Sons!), Aunts and Grandmothers!
On Mother’s Day weekend, De’Aaron Fox, Sacramento King’s Point Guard, and his mother, Lorraine, hosted their annual basketball clinic at Golden 1 Center. Free to participants, attendees included Albie Aware breast cancer survivors and their children. The clinic provided participants with a chance to rub elbows with De’Aaron and enhance their basketball skills while having fun and learning together!
Hundreds of children between the ages of 6-14 participated with their mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and others. Together, they were seen throwing, passing, making bank shots, and dribbling the ball down the court. During the event, Lorraine shared insight into her own battle with cancer and De’Aaron talked about the importance of his relationship with his mother and family.
Players were encouraged to bring their own basketball and spend the day running drills and playing games with their favorite Point Guard and Junior Kings coaches. At the end of the clinic, De’Aaron gifted some hard-working participants with autographs and memorabilia.
This one-day clinic included:
- Instruction from De’Aaron Fox, Lorraine Fox, and Junior Kings trainers.
- Junior Kings t-shirt.
- Participation certificate.
- Exclusive chances to win Kings prizes.
“We were so pleased with the number of participants in the clinic this year,” says Amanda Nelson, Albie Aware Executive Director. “We are honored to get the visibility this event provides and look forward to seeing many more Sacramento youth out there with us next year!”
