Progression Athletics Internation provides free sports clinics to foster youth and their siblings in the Treasure Valley.
The objective of the basketball clinic is to allow local foster youth an opportunity to go through a variety of drills while competing against with fun games. Throughout the clinic, we aim to teach life skills such as communication, teamwork and accountability. We promote positive attitudes and overall good behavior by awarding four particpants a trophy at the end of the day. These indivduals will be awarded for sportsmanship, leadership, inspiration and the PAI award.
Below is a sample breakdown of the events flow.
