TJC Apache Ladies Take Special Olympians To School

Some local athletes spent the weekend doing a little coaching of their own.

At Tyler Junior College. the Apache Ladies held a free clinic for the East Texas Special Olympics. They worked with them on the fundamentals of the game, and then they all got a couple of games of three-on-three together.

And as you can tell from the highlights, they were quick learners. They played for a couple of hours and then had a pizza party for the athletes, and win or lose, everyone had a fun time.  

The Special Olympians are in training now, the Special Olympics Basketball Meet will be in Tyler in March. The Tyler chapter will host teams from all over East Texas.
