Spots still remain for the Baron, McClanaghan basketball clinic


A few spots still remain for the upcoming Shoot Like A Pro clinic on Saturday, June 30 at Bishop Hendricken High School. The one-day basketball clinic is open to boys and girls, 9-18 years-old.  

Former URI standout Jimmy Baron and current NBA trainer Rob McClanaghan will direct the Shoot Like A Pro clinic.

Baron, the former Atlantic-10 First Team Selection who was the top three-point shooter in the conference during his four year career with the Rams and is the All-Time leading A-10 3-point shooter, is currently playing professionally in Spain in the ACB, one of the top leagues in Europe. For the past two years, Baron has led the ACB in 3-pointers.

McClanaghan trains some of the top professional basketball players in the NBA, including 2011 MVP Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love and Kevin Durant. McClanaghan’s work with Oklahoma City’s Westbrook was recently highlighted in Sports Illustrated (June 14, 2012) and (June 12, 2012).

McClanaghan has also worked with Baron on his game. Now the two have teamed to host the Shoot like a Pro Clinic.

“Our goal of the clinic is for all participants to have a great experience, enhance their skills and learn more about the game of basketball. We’re going to work hard, but we’re going to have a good time. It’s going to be a lot of fun. That’s our focus,” said McClanaghan, a graduate of Hendricken and Syracuse.

The clinic will focus on the fundamentals of shooting, shooting off screens, shooting off the dribble, shooting against the defense, 3-point shooting and much more.

McClanaghan will also incorporate some of the same drills he runs with his NBA clients, including Rose and Westbrook.
