The instructor, Janice Meyer, has over twenty years of coaching and playing experience.  She is Junior Varsity coach for the Cortland High School Girls’ Basketball team. Janice also coaches the CNY Girls’ Basketball League.

Youth Basketball is for ages’ seven to twelve. Players will learn basic fundamentals including, passing, ball handling, lay-ups and proper shooting form. Players will work in groups according to their age, grade and ability. Classes will meet from 9:00-10:00 am.

The Girls’ Basketball Clinic is for girls’ ages eleven to fourteen. The clinic will better prepare athletes for their upcoming season and provide the skills for those who are trying to make the team. The skills, drills and strengthening exercises taught will improve their game. The basketball clinic will be from 10:00-11:30 am. Janice’s Cortland JV players will assist in the Youth Basketball and Girls’ Clinic, providing a lot of personal attention.
