DETROIT -- Want your kids to catch the spirit of NCAA March Madness® in the Detroit area? Sign them up for free youth basketball clinics (for boys and girls ages 10 to 16), being conducted by many of America’s most successful men’s NCAA basketball coaches and student- athletes on Saturday, April 4, 2009, from 8 a.m. to noon. The clinics will be held at three metro Detroit locations:

• Joe Dumars Fieldhouse, 45300 Mound Road, Shelby Township
• Renaissance High School, 6565 W. Outer Drive, Detroit
• Western International High School, 1500 Scotten Street, Detroit

The YES Clinics are being coordinated in conjunction with the 2009 NCAA Men's Final Four, April 4-6. Attending the clinics is free to the public and all participating youth will be accepted on a first come-first serve basis, but early pre-registration is required to ensure participation. Registration is now open at www.NCAA.com/yesclinics.

The Youth Education through Sports (YES) Clinics hydrated by vitaminwater® revive are the NCAA’s premier outreach to youth across the country, connecting young athletes with NCAA coaches and student-athletes to provide fundamental instruction in sports, conditioning and life skills at selected collegiate championships.

Participants will receive basketball skill instruction from NCAA coaches and student-athletes, and hear from experts in conditioning and life skills, who will conduct activities to improve mental and physical fitness both on and off the court. The specific skill sessions will be more instructional in format, and teach the “FUN” in fundamentals of sports and life. Participation in these clinics will allow youth to experience the excitement of the 2009 Final Four first-hand. All participants should wear athletic shoes and be dressed for physical activity.

Each participant, in addition to the clinic instruction, will receive a souvenir YES Clinic T-shirt, printed materials on basketball skill development, nutrition and academic topics and other gift items.

Parents and/or guardians will have the opportunity to attend a “What Every Parent Should Know” session during the clinic. In this session, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss issues relating to youth sports, nutrition, sportsmanship, recruiting, college entrance preparation and injury prevention with experts from the community. Panelists may include various representatives from NCAA member schools: a collegiate compliance officer, an athletics trainer (nutrition and injury prevention), a coach, a referee, and a student-athlete. This year, the NCAA also is saying “YES to Heart Health”. Attendees will be provided information about improving and maintaining children’s heart health.
