CLINICS 

2024 BASKETBALL CLINICS

YMCA Sports Programs help children become not only better players, but better people as well.  The basketball clinics will develop the skills of young players while building character and sportsmanship.  They will also develop a foundation for future excellence by developing dribbling, shooting, defense & passing skills through challenging activities beneficial in high level sports.  Participants can be of all skill levels and abilities.  Each athlete will enjoy the mix of games, activities, and competitions!   The goal is to teach young athletes proper techniques and fundamentals while providing a fun environment to learn in! 

An exception will most likely be made even if your child does not fit the age level. These are smaller group lessons so spots may be limited! 

CJ Hirschy is the current Fitness and Sports Director at the Raritan Valley YMCA where he oversees the department and teaches youth sports classes.  Sports have been a significant part of CJ’s life. CJ lettered in baseball and basketball at Toms River High School East and went on to play Division I Baseball at Rider University.  CJ shares that he has been surrounded by great coaches and teammates who he has learned from, enhancing his ability to teach youth.  He has spent several summers running youth baseball and basketball camps, clinics, and tournaments.
