From CBS Chicago

Former Chicago Bulls star and hall-of-famer Scottie Pippen will start his second year of a partnership with Nike to offer free basketball skills clinics in neighborhood parks across Chicago, according to a statement from Mayor Emanuel’s office Tuesday. The free clinics, known as Chi League Parks, will be held every Saturday this summer, starting May 31.

In addition to Chi League Parks, Chi League Pro-Am is a 10-week pro-am series featuring 12 neighborhood teams comprised of 180 elite basketball players, including 30 current and former professional basketball players, the city said.

Chi League School is an intensive basketball and life skills development program for high school student-athletes who want to improve their skills but do not have the opportunity to get invited to premier off-season leagues.

For a full schedule, visit the Chicago Park District website or call (312) 742-7529.
