Children master the basics at clinic in Modesto

local@modbee.comMay 4, 2013 

— Children 5 to 12 years old got a crash course in several sports Saturday morning during a clinic at Johansen High School.

In 30-minute increments, the kids were shown the fundamentals of basketball, soccer, softball and baseball, tennis, and football.

The three-hour clinic was a senior project, and the registration fee of $15-$20 raised money for the Modesto nonprofit organization Without Permission, which fights human trafficking.
