Manchester High School boys basketball coach Mike Ahrens will host the PKD Basketball Coaches Clinic Oct. 9.

The clinic will run from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and features a lineup of speakers who have accumulated nearly 1,000 career wins, talking on post-play, defense, the transition game and one-on-one sets.

The speaker lineup includes Carrie Moore from the University of Michigan; Milt Barnes of Jackson High School; Steve Hawkins, former coach at Western Michigan University, and Phil Martelli, a former head coach at St. Joseph’s and currently a University of Michigan assistant.

Martelli led St. Joseph’s to seven NCAA Tournaments and six NIT appearances in 24 seasons.

In addition to providing coaches the opportunity to learn more about the game, the event is also to bring awareness and generate funds to fight Polycystic Kidney Disease, a non-profit organization. Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is one of the most common, life-threatening genetic diseases. The PKD Foundation funds research to find treatments and a cure and provide information and support to people affected by PKD.
