Temple coach Fran Dunphy will be the featured speaker at the 6th annual Hoops-from-the-Heart basketball clinic for boys and girls in grades 1-8, hosted by Cabrini College on Martin Luther King Day, Jan. 15, and benefitting needy families in Delaware County.
The clinic, conducted by the coaches and players on both Cabrini teams, will run from 9 a.m. to noon at Nerney Field House, located in the college's Dixon Center. Drop-off and check-in will begin at 8:15 a.m. Each child will receive a free Hoops-from-the-Heart T-shirt.
The $30 fee will go directly to the Community Action Agency of Delaware County, a nonprofit organization that has provided housing, job training and other services to the needy since 1979. Last year's clinic, attended by nearly 250 area children, raised $5,300 for the agency.
"This is a way to raise money for a great cause and give young kids something fun to do on a day off from school," said Cabrini women's coach Bobbi Morgan, a former Haverford High coach who founded the clinic in 2002. Morgan will run the event along with Cabrini men's coach Matthew Macciocca, a former Radnor High star.
The clinic, co-sponsored by the Radnor Township and Haverford Township recreation departments, will group players by age and ability and provide instruction in such basketball fundamentals as passing, shooting, defense, ballhandling, rebounding and team play.
Players are encouraged to bring one non-perishable canned good for the Community Action Agency. The organization runs homeless shelters and provides other social services for the poor, including employment counseling and domestic-abuse counseling.
