Hoops for Troops scheduled Sept. 11

The third annual Hoops for the Troops Basketball Clinic will be held on Sunday, Sept. 11, at the Parsons Gym from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The clinic is for boys and girls age 7-15 and the cost is $25. Players can register online at hoopskillsbasketball.com. All proceeds will go to United for the Troops, a non-profit organization that sends care packages to U.S. soldiers serving overseas.   

This year’s event will be honoring Milford first responders. Clinic organizer Joe Meade, a retired New York City police officer, is inviting all Milford police officers and firefighters to be part of the two-hour event.

Enrollment is limited and each player will get a new camouflage basketball. The activities will include contests, raffles and prizes. For more information contact Meade at jmeade2873@aol.com.
