As part of the fourth annual Jr. NBA week, three-time NBA Champion A.C. Green Jr. and the Jr. NBA will partner with Arctic Slope Community Foundation from Oct. 13-18 to host a series of clinics in Anchorage, Alaska. Bringing together more than 200 boys and girls and 100 coaches from across the state - the majority of whom are in the Alaska Native community - these clinics will include a variety of on-court skills and drills instruction and life skills programming to foster a sense of community and build confidence and leadership skills among youth in the region.
The clinics will conclude the NBA’s fourth-annual Jr. NBA Week, when all 30 NBA teams celebrate youth basketball by hosting clinics and events in their communities.
