PRCR Department to offer basketball clinics beginning December 1

Tuesday, November 24, 2020 - 4:00pm

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020-21 youth basketball season. In its place, beginning Tuesday, Dec. 1, the PRCR Department will offer a series of basketball clinics on Tuesdays and Saturdays for limited numbers of players ages 6-12 at the Joyner Park Community Center, 701 Harris Road.

Led by Networks Basketball Inc., the skills development sessions will emphasize basic basketball fundamentals, including dribbling, shooting, free throws and defensive skills, along with conditioning and mental toughness to help build confidence and ensure maximum individual improvement.

Please note: The PRCR Department will implement updated safety and cleaning protocols and take all reasonable precautions to best promote the health and safety of those who choose to participate in these clinics. State health guidelines now require people to wear face coverings when in public places, indoor or outdoor, and around those who are not members of the same household or residence. As a result, participants will be required to wear face coverings at all times.

“The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department is taking all reasonable precautions to best promote the health and safety of our community,” said PRCR Director Ruben Wall. “Public health is a shared responsibility, and it is one we take very seriously. We are continuing to follow local, state and national public health updates and assessing our role in curbing the spread of COVID-19. We urge participants in all our programs to monitor their own health, stay home if they are sick or not feeling well, wash their hands often, wear a mask, and take appropriate physical distancing measures. These actions are vital to slowing the spread of the virus and protecting the most vulnerable in our community.”
