For six Saturdays this winter, Onekama Elementary School girls have
been busy “hooping it up.” The girls are participating in a Winter
Girls Basketball Clinic in the school gymnasium.
The children meet in two groups: First through Fourth graders, and
Fifth and Sixth graders. The clinic is run by volunteer coaches
Dennis McCarthy and Heidi Wisniski. The goals of the clinic are to
introduce and reinforce the fundamentals of the game, and to keep
students active during the winter months.
During halftime of two Onekama High School junior varsity basketball
games, the girls get the opportunity to display what they have
learned in exhibition scrimmage games. (The girls play again
Thursday Feb. 7 at JV half-time)
