Millikin University's Women's Basketball program teamed up with Decatur Public Schools (DPS-61) to create a Big Blue youth basketball clinic specifically designed for girls grades 4-8. The dates for the basketball clinic are June 16-18 and July 21-23.

On June 17, 250 campers attended the basketball clinic, held in the Griswold Center, to learn the basic fundamentals of passing, dribbling and shooting from Millikin Head Women's Basketball Coach Lori Kerans, as well as Millikin Women's Basketball staff members and student-athletes.

Millikin and DPS worked with the Community Partnership of Macon County to make sure the event was free. Those who attend receive a T-shirt and those who attend three of the six days get to take home a basketball.

Millikin student-athlete Hannah Millington, a junior sports management major from Argenta, Ill., said, "It really makes you appreciate giving the campers the opportunity because you're seeing them learn so much. Even from the first day to now they've grown."
