    GRIT Defensive Clinic - Becoming an elite defender and playing against one
    Elite level defensive techniques are often under-practiced and therefore, under-utilized. High-level defense is not "read and react" where the offense makes a move and the defense reacts and tries to stop it. An elite defensive player forces the offense to react to them. In this important GRIT clinic, we help you understand both the defensive and offensive end of the court - on-ball defense, help defense, guarding a scorer, performing against an elite defender, understanding team offense, and playing with and without the ball.

    LOCATION: Mater Dei Prep, 538 Church St, Middletown, NJ 07748
    COST: $90 (50% off for all Mater Dei Prep & SMAA students)
    AGE: 4th to 8th grade girls and boys
