NBA FIT Clinic

On October 13, the Taggart Family YMCA in Ottawa was the setting for a breathtaking (literally!) NBA FIT Clinic with NBA players Zach LaVine and Cory Joseph, and a press conference to announce an “NBA Cares” contribution to the refurbishment of an outdoor basketball court in nearby Almonte, birthplace of YMCA instructor and the game’s inventor, James Naismith.

YMCA Canada President and CEO Scott Haldane was on hand for the event, covered by the Ottawa Citizen, along with Bob Gallagher, Acting CEO of the YMCA of the National Capital Region, and Jim Naismith, James Naismith’s grandson.
