It’s a bit of a promotion, but then that is what the Harlem Globetrotters do.

Two 24 Hour Fitness centers will feature the basketball wizards in a couple of clinics scheduled for July. The Globetrotters have teamed up with 24 Hour Fitness and coach the clinics in two-hour sessions, three each day over a three-day period.

The sessions begin at 9 a.m. each day and conclude at 5:30 p.m. The cost is $69 for each two-hour clinic, but there is a $15 discount for anyone who signs up by St. Patrick’s Day (Monday, March 17).

The clinics are for boys and girls of all basketball skill levels, or virtually no skills at all. After all, the Globetrotters are very entertaining, as well as very skilled.

The July 22-24 clinics will be at the fitness center located at 8785 Center Parkway. The July 25-27 clinics are at 1020 7th St. – both centers are in Sacramento.

Besides learning hoops from the best, participants get an official clinic certificate complete with personalized nickname and a ticket voucher for the ‘Trotters 2015 North American Tour. There is also a photograph and autograph session at the end of the clinic.

“What could be more fun than to be coached by the Harlem Globetrotters,” said Globetrotters star Dizzy Grant. “We bring joy to the game unlike anyone else.”

Every kid’s Hoop Dreams.
