NEW LONDON, Oct. 4 – Several Connecticut Sun players took a little time away from their preparation for game three of the WNBA finals on Friday night to participate in a clinic for youngsters at Connecticut College.

The WNBA and AT&T hosted a Her Time to Play clinic at Connecticut College’s Charles B. Luce Field House with 75 girls ranging in age from 7 to 13.

The clinic focused on fundamentals of the game and developing good habits.

Connecticut’s Jonquel Jones, Courtney Williams, Morgan Tuck, Natisha Hiedeman and Theresa Plaisance participated in the clinic along with Amber Cox, vice president of the Connecticut Sun, former Sun All-Star Taj McWilliams-Franklin and current Sun television reporter Robyn Brown.

The girls also heard an engaging and empowering discussion from the athletes about the unique challenges girls and women in sports face. The panelists shared strategies on facing adversity, provide insights into their careers and offered advice on overcoming self-doubt to reach one’s goals.
