NORWICH, Conn. — Story by Leeya Fabry and Aislinn Richmond 

The Norwich Free Academy Girls’ Basketball team hosts a basketball clinic for girls from ages 5-13. 

This free clinic provides girls with skills such as dribbling, shooting, and passing. It focuses on teaching the girls valuable life lessons such as hard work and dedication.

Coach Anne Zinn talked about the importance of the program, “The goal is for the girls to become more comfortable with the sport, but also gaining confidence, learning how to be young leaders, getting out there, and just growing their personalities a little bit.”
