Clarksville Rotary Club and Civitan International hosted the Basketball Tip-Off, which gives boys and girls coaches the chance to share their plans for the upcoming season and how their players are improving.
A total of 16 coaches represented eight high schools, including Clarksville Academy, Clarksville High, Montgomery Central, Rossview, Northwest, Northeast, Kenwood, and West Creek. Each coach expressed his or her gratitude toward Rotary, Civitan, First Baptist Church, and the community for their continued support of high school sports programs. The coaches remain optimistic about their teams and look forward to a stellar season.
Bob Belvin and Brian Rives were emcees for the event, which was broadcast on Sports Radio 540 The Fan. Rives, from The Fan, recognized the importance of bringing coaches together for this event.
“This is just a great opportunity for every coach to come out and focus on the student athlete,” he said. “We all enjoy going to the games, we all enjoy the end product, but we don’t always see the work that goes into it.”
High school basketball games are open to the public, and most games cost a minimal amount. “Even if you’re not from Clarksville, if you’re not an alumni, go out and watch high school basketball. You’ll be impressed with the level of play all throughout the county,” Rives said.
