Cranston native and elite NBA trainer Rob McClanaghan be returning to his alma matter to host a pre-season skills clinic in November at Bishop Hendricken High School.
The two-day basketball clinic is open to boys and girls, 10-18 years-old.
The Rob Mac Pre-season Skills Clinic is designed for players looking to refine their skills as they prepare for upcoming team-tryouts and the winter season. McClanaghan’s instruction is geared to bring each player’s on court skills, game-situation knowledge to the next level.
McClanaghan trains some of the top professional basketball players in the NBA, including 2011 MVP Derrick Rose and 2012 Olympic Gold Medalists Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love, Kevin Durant and Candace Parker. McClanaghan’s work with Oklahoma City’s Westbrook, a member of the 2012 Olympic Gold Medal winning basketball team, was highlighted in Sports Illustrated (June 14, 2012) and DeadSpin.com (June 12, 2012).
McClanaghan, who hails from Rhode Island, will incorporate some of the same drills he runs with his NBA clients in his upcoming clinic at his alma mater, Hendricken.
“The goal of the clinic is to prepare players for the upcoming season by enhancing their skills, improving their conditioning and increasing their knowledge. We’re going to work hard, but we are going to have a good time,” said McClanaghan.
