Town Partners With Long Island Nets To Host Basketball Clinics

North Hempstead Town Supervisor Jennifer DeSena and the Town Board are excited to again partner with the Long Island Nets to host free basketball clinics throughout the town this summer.

“The Nets have hosted these in years past so we’re thrilled that our kids have another opportunity to learn from the pros this summer,” Supervisor DeSena said. “But the team has established itself with our town in other ways too. They purchased a new scoreboard and shot clocks for the Yes We Can Community Center basketball court and sponsored back-to-school “Stuff-A-Bus” campaigns for low-income families. They even donated to North Hempstead’s annual Veterans Donation Drive.”

Clinics are designed for children ages 8 to 14, pre-registration is required, and attendees must be residents of the Town of North Hempstead.

Clinics take place:

Friday, July 12 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  at Donald Street Park, Roslyn Heights

Saturday, August 17 at 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Broadway Park, Garden City Park

Space is limited. To register for the clinic, please visit: For more information, including rain dates, please call 311.
