Royal Ivey, a Hollis native who started out playing for Cardozo High School and went on to a career as an NBA player and coach, will bring his knowledge of what it takes to win both on and off the basketall court back to his home turf this weekend.

Ivey will be leading the eighth annual “Royal Skills” Baskeball Clinic at the Renaissance School (IS 192) and Hollis Playground at Hollis Avenue and Run DMC/Jam Master Jay Way Friday and Saturday. The clinic, which is open to boys and girls from 8 to 13 years of age, is focused on teaching both on-court skills, with sessions devoted to calisthenics and drills, and academic skills. There will also be competitions (with prizes awarded), food, celebrity speakers and workshops for parents.

The clinic runs from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and from noon to 7 p.m. Saturday.

For more information on the event, call 404-936-4480 or visit the Royal Ivey Basketball Camp page on Facebook.
