Men’s Basketball office manager Julie Pioletti & Allison Groce got together last week to finalize some details for September 2nd’s “Chalk Talk,” a four hour basketball clinic for women.
The event will take place at the Ubben & Corzine practice facility, at the corner of Fourth Street and St. Mary’s Road in Champaign, beginning at 5 p.m.
John Groce and his coaching staff will be on hand, as well as all their wives: Keisha Parham, Marcie Ford, Rebekah Walker and Allison. The first item on the agenda includes cocktails, to get everybody in the mood.
Illini players will join the coaches for a series of skill station demonstrations, and stick around for a Q & A session at 8 p.m.
Participants will get a full tour of the practice facility, including the Illini locker room. And they’ll have a chance to play with “The Gun,” the mechanical device that rebounds & computes shots taken at the basket.
The cost is $45.00 per person, payable by check or cash only. Participants can register in advance by mail, or on site. A portion of the proceeds will go to the National Association of Basketball Coaches’ Coaches Vs. Cancer fund.
Women interested in registering, or learning more details, should contact Julie at the Ubben:Julie Pioletti
