Teachers Convention Basketball Clinic with OT Sports and WPU is a Success
Wayne, NJ – On November 5th and 6th, Coach Dan Halewicz of Overtime Sports and Coach Jose Rebimbas of William Paterson University held a 2 day basketball clinic for children during the Teacher Convention break. The clinic was a huge success with over 50 participants ranging in age from 7-17. The 9am- 3pm full day clinics consisted of offensive and defensive drills, ball handling, foot work, passing drills, shooting drills, and much more.
The children were able to utilize "The Gun" to improve their shot. " This basketball shooting machine acts an automatic rebounder, instantly rebounding a made or missed shot and giving a direct return pass for another shot. The Gun has a timing device so you can determine the distance and the speed of your return passes, thus creating situations where players can develop their shooting skills off the move and with game like intensity. The Gun can fire up to 1800 shots per hour and has an optional computerized scoreboard that counts and displays makes, total shots and shooting percentage." shoot-a-way.com
