GREENVILLE, OH (October 28, 2015) – The YMCA of Darke County is excited to welcome coach Thom Townsley, of the Indiana Pacers, to our Y on Saturday, November 7. Coach Townsley will be instructing two shooting clinics for youth ages 8-14. The Greenville shooting clinic will be 9:00 am – 11:00 am, with a second clinic in Versailles from 12 noon – 2:00 pm. The fee for the clinic is $20 for members and potential members alike.

Coach Townsley brings over 25 years coaching experience with players from age 4 to NBA professionals. He has led over 6,500 clinics worldwide. Attend the clinic and you can expect to improve your game by learning new skills and working on the fundamentals, like how to execute the proper chest pass and bounce pass.
