QUEENSBURY, New York (June 6, 2023) — Nothing says “summer fun” quite like sunshine, a little swimming and — of course — sports clinics at SUNY Adirondack.

“Clinics are an exciting time at the SUNY Adirondack gym,” said Julie Clark, assistant director of Athletics. “Players get to teach the sports they love, coaches get to help develop future talent and we are all inspired by the enthusiasm on the court.”

Mascot extraordinaire Eddy Rondack is proud to kick off another great season of athletic development with SUNY Adirondack’s Girls Basketball Clinic from July 10 to 13.

Girls entering grades 5 through 12 have the opportunity to focus on fundamentals and receive personal attention in passing, shooting, dribbling, rebounding and defense. Players are grouped by age for fun activities, competition, and discussions about off-court activities and habits that improve on-court performance. 

Led by SUNY Adirondack Women’s Basketball Coach Cornelius Tavarres and players, the clinic runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Registration — which is $225 per player, with a $25 discount for each additional sibling — is open at This clinic is capped at 50 players; registration closes June 23.
