Johns Hopkins first-year medical students are hosting the 15th annual sports clinic for third-, fourth- and fifth-graders from East Baltimore. The free clinics will be from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays, May 4, 11, 18 and 25 at the Denton A. Cooley Athletic Center, 1621 McElderry St.
The clinics are designed to introduce youngsters to positive role models, expose them to new sports in a fun, relaxed atmosphere and teach them the importance exercise plays in maintaining lifelong health. "We want kids to know that playing not only is fun but is good for them, too ," says Lee Alison Snyder, a program coordinator. "We get a lot out of this program, too. It's great to break away from the studies and jump rope with them."
With a parent's permission, the young people may participate in basketball, tennis, wrestling, soccer, football, aerobics, double-dutch jump rope and martial arts. Spaces are filled on first-come, first-served basis.
