Some of the absolute best basketball players to ever come from or pass through the Capital Region have been trained by Dags Basketball. Now Unified athletes will get that same opportunity thanks to a virtual clinic featuring Steve "Dags" Dagostino and Joe Cremo, and thanks to the Special Olympics of New York along with Mohawk Honda and Mohawk Chevrolet.

The Unified Basketball program has been a significant success here in the Capital Region. If you're unfamiliar with "Unified Sports" it's the pairing of people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. The benefits for both groups are gigantic. There is an immediate development of understanding and friendship.

As reported in The Saratogian the Clinic will be held virtually from 9 to 9:45 am on January 24th. Participants must register in advance HERE. Not only will you receive a free t-shirt but with drills being run by Dags who has coached names like Joseph Girard III, Kevin Huerter, and many more as well as Joe Cremo who not only trained with Dags but played at UAlbany, Villanova, and pro ball you'll learn and have fun.
