SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- The Wolves Basketball Academyhas run six special needs clinics -- averaging 22 participants each -- at the Newmark School this fall.
"These clinics allow the children to have time on a Saturday morning to exercise and be with other children. It is amazing to see the smiles on their faces and to hear the positive feedback from their parents," said Jeff Mayerson, organizer of the Wolves Basketball Academy.
With the help and dedication of adult volunteers Mike Freeman, Barry Offitzer and Peter Eisen, Mayerson has been able to run a consistent program that enables the children to learn the game of basketball in a fun environment.  The NBA has shown their support towards Jeff's program by providing T shirts.  
All sessions take place on Saturdays from 10:00 -- 11:15 a.m. at the Newmark School, 100 Cellar Avenue in Scotch Plains.  Mayerson has announced additional clinic dates:
Nov. 22, Dec. 13, and Dec, 20, 2014, and January 10, 17, 24, and 31, 2015
