Join us today as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Mississippi partners with Mississippi native, NBA Charlotte Bobcat Al Jefferson to present a one-day basketball clinic to help raise funds to support our organization and the youth we serve. Mr. Jefferson, formerly of the Utah Jazz, along with local high school basketball coaches will work one-on-one with over sixty of our kids, helping them with basketball fundamentals and skill development.  

We'll have hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, drinks and popcorn to help make this a very special event for our kids and sponsors alike.
