Dozens of kids participated in a basketball clinic with Knicks legend Larry Johnson.

The New York Knicks schooled Jamaica kids in basketball at a fitness clinic at I.S. 238.

Councilmember Leroy Comrie hosted the event in conjunction with the Knicks on Thursday, February 28. New York legend Larry Johnson came out to participate with the kids and give them pointers on how to succeed on the court.

“Basketball is ingrained in New York’s history, and it’s important to teach youth about healthy living and staying physically active,” said Johnson. “It’s always a pleasure to be a part of an event like this.”

The clinic brought in dozens of eager participants from all over the community, who took part in workshops that focused on basketball skills while emphasizing the importance of sportsmanship and teamwork.

As kids hustled through a variety of drills, a DJ played music to help keep the energy level up. Once the clinic was complete, participants excitedly took pictures and got autographs from Johnson and Comrie.

“This is a great event for [the] youth,” said Comrie. “I’m happy to have teamed up with the Knicks to host this clinic, in hopes of teaching children how to live a healthy and active lifestyle.”
