Four times a year, Oracle employees and the Golden State Warriors team up to host Community Basketball Clinics, half-day workshops for 40 youth players from the San Francisco Bay Area. At a recent clinic, Warriors guards Kent Bazemore and Charles Jenkins (now playing with the Philadelphia 76ers) ran drills and answered questions for children from the SOMA Recreation Center and El Sobrante Christian School. According to Warriors President and Chief Operating Officer Rick Welts, it’s great encouragement for young players. “Our youth basketball camps and clinics connect us with our community and help support and teach the game of basketball,” he says.
