City offers basketball programs taught by former collegiate coach, professional player

Surprise, AZ (September 16, 2021) Surprise Parks & Recreation now offers weekly skill appropriate basketball programs taught by former collegiate/professional players.

Sunday basketball clinics taught by Coach Anthony Enriquez will focus on different aspects of basketball. Clinics are broken up both by age and skill level to ensure athletes compete against others at the same level. This new class is open to players ages 5-15 and begins Sunday, September 19. 

Coach Enriquez was an NCAA Division II player at Minot State who transitioned into collegiate coaching for both Glendale Community College and American Indian College. 

Additionally, the traditional 6-week basketball classes will now be led by former professional basketball player Shelby Chaney. The classes will focus on progression and are designed to further develop well-rounded players. Classes are on Mondays and Wednesday nights beginning Monday, September 20. Players ages 7-15 who want to improve their skills are encouraged to register.
