SFCS thanks McNamara Sports on G Street in Merced for donating brand new basketballs for this clinic.
October 10, 2017 - David Putonen, Sierra Foothill Charter School's 5th and 6th grade aide and a seasoned basketball coach, has generously set aside time to offer a basketball clinic for students in grades 5-8. The after school clinic started September 27 and runs four weeks. At the end, students will play games against another school and against staff. This is great opportunity for students to work on their basketball skills.
