The Xavier women’s basketball team has set out to serve young basketball players in the community. They are hosting the sixth annual “Girls Day Out” event on Sept. 14 at the Cintas Center.
It serves as a one-day basketball camp for young girls to play basketball, learn skills and meet the players and coaching staff of the Musketeers.
The clinic is held for girls in grades one through eight, and parents are invited to join them as Xavier players and coaches lead the activities and drills.
The clinic is aimed not only at the girls, but also their parents.
Mothers and fathers are invited to engage in the clinic and talk with the coaching staff for an opportunity to learn how to aid in their daughters’ skill level.
There is no fee to participate in the clinic, and the girls will receive free T-shirts and light refreshments. Participants will get autographs and photo opportunities with the Musketeers.
The clinic also offers an exclusive tour of Cintas Center and an opportunity to play on the newly designed court.
This is a great chance for young girls in the Xavier community to come to campus and engage in an interactive basketball opportunity on the home floor of one of the most well-known men’s and women’s basketball programs in the country. This will be an excellent opportunity for young girls to participate in useful basketball drills and interact with experienced basketball players.
With the unveiling of the new court design, Cintas Center has a refurbished atmosphere surrounding it as teams begin play this fall.
