Ironwood Township - June 9, 2009

The 2009 Samson and Lady Samson Basketball Clinic began yesterday at the Lindquist Student Center on the campus of Gogebic Community College,. When asked how long has the clinic been operating co-director Dennis Mackey told us that this is the twenty third year that he has been associated with the clinic and it was being operated before he came on board. 

The clinic is being conducted by G.C.C. Samson Coach Mackey and his co-director Lady Samson Coach Stephanie Byrns, aided by former, current, and future Samson & Lady Samson Players.

The G.C.C. Samson and Lady Samson Basketball Clinic seeks to offer a sound foundation for beginners and a strong challenge for advanced players. The coaches help participants become better players and more disciplined athletes. The staff gives detailed attention to individuals in ball handling, passing. dribbling, defending, rebounding, and shooting. "Our coaches will develop an awareness of each player's strengths and weaknesses and work with him or her to 'become an 'improved player" says Mackey .

The clinic operates each year for four days and is offered to boys and girls in the third through twelfth grades. In each of the four days there are 3 on 3 or 5 on 5 games played along with daily individual contests featuring ball handling and shooting, as well as fundamental stations and drills.
