Caddo Parish Parks and Recreation, in conjunction with Raising Canes will host the 2nd Annual Jr. NBA Skills Challenge for youth girls and boys, ages 7 – 13 on Saturday, April 1st from 9:00am – 12:00noon, at the Huntington High School gymnasium. This annual event is in honor of the late Huntington High School basketball star, Devin Myers, who was fatally shot March 3rd, 2022 due to senseless gun violence that continue to plaque our Caddo Parish communities.
Participants will have an opportunity to showcase their basketball skills through five fundamental basketball drills (shooting, lay-ups, dribbling, passing and defense). In addition to this great sporting event, local law enforcement and mental health representatives will be on-site and available to discuss with youth the impact of gun violence in our communities.
Registration is required! Registration deadline is Tuesday, March 28th. To register online, visit the event page or contact Mary Murphy at (318)220-6284.
