PORTLAND, Maine — The Maine Red Claws will launch their third annual summer clinic series Monday.

The 90-minute free clinics teach basketball fundamentals to children of all ages and will be held at select Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants.

The monthlong Maine Red Claws Summer Clinic Series, sponsored by Dunkin’ Donuts, will bring the team’s caravan to 12 cities and towns, traveling more than 1,200 miles. The clinic series will kick off Monday in Gorham and conclude Aug. 2 in Lisbon Falls.

“This is wonderful collaboration with the local Dunkin’ Donuts business owners to bring professional basketball to kids across the state, and a great opportunity for us to visit fans across Maine, many of whom may have only had the opportunity to see the team play on television,” said Dajuan Eubanks, Red Claws vice president of corporate partnerships.

All of the clinics will begin at 10 a.m. and will be held in the parking lot of a locally owned Dunkin’ Donuts location. No preregistration is necessary. Further information is on the Red Claws website, www.maineredclaws.com, and at Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants.
