NEW LONDON, Conn. – Coast Guard men's basketball head coach Kevin Jaskiewicz will be a featured speaker at the first ever Connecticut High School Basketball Coaching Clinic on Friday at 7:00 at the Mohegan Sun.
The clinic is in conjunction with the CIAC Girls and Boys Basketball Finals at Mohegan Sun Arena, which will take place on Saturday and Sunday.
Jaskiewicz, in his 10th season as head coach at the Academy, led the Bears to a record of 16-8 this season, its most wins since the 2007-'08 season when the team won a school-record 24 games and advanced to the Elite 8. He was an assistant coach on that record breaking team.
The three-hour event will feature presentations from three Connecticut collegiate coaches, as well as a question and answer session on NFHS rules with the Connecticut State Board Rules Interpreter. Sacred Heart University men's head coach Anthony Latina, Eastern Connecticut State women's head coach Denise Bierly, and Jaskiewicz will be the clinicians for the event.
"This new event is the result of some creative thinking and a lot of work from Dave Schulz, Associate Boys Basketball Tournament Director, and our basketball committee members who wished to find a way to offer a great experience for high school basketball coaches in the state and enhance what is already an exciting weekend of basketball," stated CAS-CIAC Executive Director Glenn Lungarini.
The event is $15 to attend and is open to all Connecticut high school basketball coaches. All attendees will also receive one complimentary ticket to each of the three CIAC Basketball Championship sessions at Mohegan Sun.
The clinic was created and organized by members of the CIAC Boys and Girls Basketball Committees and is being sponsored by BSN Sports.
