Maine Celtics Coming to the County

This is probably a once in a lifetime experience coming to Aroostook County, Maine this summer. The Maine Celtics coaches are making a road trip to Fort Fairfield to put on a basketball clinic on Tuesday, August 9, 2022. 

Time and Location

Grab the kids and don’t miss it from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Fort Fairfield Middle/High School, located at 28 High School Drive.

Learning from the Pros

Featured at the clinic will be D-1 player Austin Vereen, the Pacific and Player Development Assistant for the Maine Celtics in 2021. Learn what it takes to make it as a professional athlete. This should be inspiring to many of our local youths who dream about playing basketball for a living (or at least competing at a higher level).

Who Can Attend the Clinic?
