PORTLAND — The Maine Red Claws, presented by Unum, today announced the team has once again partnered with local Dunkin’ Donuts business owners to offer a free basketball clinic series across the state of Maine for children between the ages of 7-14.

The day-long clinics (lasting from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.) teach the fundamentals of basketball and will feature former Red Claws players Malcolm Miller and Ralph Sampson III. The clinic will make five stops, ranging all over the Pine Tree State.

Local Dunkin’ Donuts business owners are continually looking for ways – such as these free clinics – to give back to their community. Now in its seventh year, the clinics have been expanded in length to offer participants even more time to develop their skills.

The schedule for the 2017 Dunkin’ Donuts Summer Clinic Series is below:

Monday, July 31 Lewiston Lewiston Recreation Center – 65 Central Ave.

Tuesday, August 1 Houlton Houlton Recreation Center – 128 Main Street


Wednesday, August 2 Ellsworth Ellsworth Elementary-Middle School – 20 Forest Ave.

Thursday, August 3 Hampden Skehan Recreation Center – 1 Main Road North

Friday, August 4 Waterville Alfond Youth Center – 126 North Street

No pre-registration is required for the clinics. Children are asked to bring lunch. Parental permission is required and a parent/guardian must sign a waiver on the day of the clinic. Waivers can be downloaded at www.maineredclaws.com.
