Mad Ants Basketball Clinic


On August 11, 2012, Howe cadets participated in a basketball clinic put on by the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.  A member of the Mad Ants coaching staff, a Mad Ants player, and a member of the U.S. Army conducted a basketball workout along with some physical fitness training conducted by the Army. Clinics are held in the off-season to get kids energized about fitness.  They want to make kids’ health a priority, not a goal.  Children that stay active and exercise are more likely to live longer, healthier lives.  Cadet Battalion Commander Simon Holzer said, “This experience served the cadets in many different ways.  It strengthened us and gave us a basic knowledge of basketball.  Most importantly it taught us the importance of teamwork and effort.  Through the strenuous physical activities and tiring drills, we learned that through the Army and basketball, teamwork and friendship can truly be taught.  The Corps of Cadets participated in every activity, and we performed to the best of our abilities.  We hope to host the Mad Ants again.”
