A basketball coach is starting up clinics Tue, 12 Dec 2017 00:05:53 +0000 Basketball Clinics A basketball coach is starting up clinics WCIA the fire. ((aaron))a coach is trying to re-start basketball clinics after the head coach was arrested for assaulting and abusing teenage girls.this is another follow-up53 year old barry wolfe was the coach of the a-a-u team the central illinois storm.police say he assaulted and abused four girls more than a dozen times. practices are continuing at the gym in westfield.wcia three's kaitlyn connolly joins us with more,kaitlyn, this other coach says he's trying to stay positive? ((kaitlyn))he started clinics back up a few weeks ago.he says he knew the longer they waited to get things started, the harder it would be to come back from.he says when it started he didn't have any expections,but so for he's been pleasantly surprised. i cant say its dead forever, but its dead in the reality of elite and storm basketball. it was the team that helped some of illinois' best high school basketball players get noticed for college.but after coach barry wolfe was accused of having oral sex with some of his players,the team collapsed.its sad. its disappointing and a lot of years of work are just gone. but thats ok, we'll move on.that progress comes in the form of basketball clinics. after reflecting on the program for a month,sean mchenry says parents and players pushed him to keep it going.parents have been awesome. nothing but support or encouragement. they wanted somewhere for their kids to go as well so they were very supportive. i've had no negative input from anyone. and maybe those people wouldn't reach out to me anyways. he coached in this gym with wolfe for ten years. its not something he was ready to give up.he says players who want to improve their game will continue to come,and parents are always welcome to watch practices.but he knows his friend had an impact.i wanted to see him. he's my friend, and yeah i did try to get in but the jails has certain qualifications so i wasn't able to see him. but it's not something he's willing to talk about just yet. i'd rather not comment. i'll just take a pass on that. ((kaitlyn))these clinics are for both boys and the last 4, they've had anywhere from 10 to 12 players,those practices are held on sunday nights.aaron?thanks kaitlyn ((aaron))right now, wolfe is being charged with crimes against átwo girls, who say it happened in coles county.the judge reduced his bond to 2 million
