Pratt Community College men's basketball coach Sean Flynn will direct four basketball clinics in Adelaide, Australia over 12 days in July. The clinics are part of International Hoops Camps of South Australia. Each event features Australian high school aged players.
"A four year coach recruiting one of our players last year connected me with this opportunity. My player ended up signing at a different school so hopefully the four year coach isn't sending me on this trip to get jumped," joked Flynn.
Flynn will work four clinics with a wide variety of athletes while in Australia. Three of the camps are for high school players developing their skills for middle school and high school play. One of the camps will allow Flynn to make an impact on players beginning to play basketball develop the basic and technical skills required to be competitive in the game. Flynn will also speak at a coaches forum during the basketball clinics to help spread the game of basketball in southern Australia.
Flynn understands how much this event can help with future international recruiting.
"I'm eager to see how coaches teach the game in Adelaide because so many Australian players play the right way. This opportunity allows PCC to get in front of the most talented young players in South Australia. Down the line these camps could help us meet some good players. Right now I'm grateful to coach basketball."
