Fresh off a three-month, 17-country European tour with the Harlem Globetrotters, former basketball standout Bria Young ’15 will return to East Falls Campus to host a three-day girls basketball clinic for third to eighth graders in June.

“I learned some of the most important aspects of basketball, and life in general, at the Gallagher Center,” Young said. “I want girls who attend my camp to experience that same environment of hard work, determination, dedication and winning.”

Young is only the 14th female player in the Globetrotters’ 92-year history and the first out of the University. At Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University), Young scored 1,067 career points as a three-year starting point guard. Her many accolades include first team all-league, first team all-region, and co-MVP and Defensive Player of the Year of the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference.

At the clinic presented by the non-profit organization Bria Young Basketball Inc., fundamentals will be covered, including dribbling, passing, rebounding and defense, as well as tips to improve overall basketball IQ.

The clinic runs June 13-15 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Gallagher Center. For more info, visit here.
