Kirk Hinrich News
Sioux Falls now home for NBA vet Kirk Hinrich, who’s hosting Legends clinic
Updated On: 29th May 2018
Kirk Hinrich is no stranger to accolades. In 2002, he led the Kansas Jayhawks to the Final Four. He was a first-round draft pick for the Chicago Bulls in 2003. He went on to play 14 seasons in the NBA for three teams — scoring a total of 9,594 points.
But when asked about his most recent honor — being selected as one of the professional athletes to take part in this year’s Hy-Vee/Sanford Legends for Kids program — his trademark humility comes out. “Captain Kirk,” as he was known during his tenure with the Bulls, is a true team player.
“I’m not a ‘legend’, I’m just part of the community,” Hinrich said.
Since retiring from the NBA, Hinrich and his family have called Sioux Falls home.
“People have been great to us here, and we’ve really enjoyed our time here,” he said. “It’s a great place to raise kids.”
Though Hinrich has been hearing all about the Legends program since he first arrived in Sioux Falls — he joined the Sanford Pentagon as a coach in the Sanford POWER Basketball Academy last fall — this is the first year he’s participated in the free program for youth.
“I’m excited to be a part of it,” he said. “Basketball has been a big part of my life for so long. It’s natural to be back at it.”
On Saturday, June 9, Hinrich and Basketball Hall of Famer Robert “The Chief” Parish will host a free basketball clinic for youth, ages 5 to 18. The clinic will be from 9-11 a.m. at the Sanford Pentagon. Online preregistration is available and is recommended so participants can ensure they get a T-shirt in the right size.
And, of course, Hinrich and the other Legends will be at the banquet Friday, June 7, also at the Sanford Pentagon. The banquet runs from 5-9:30 p.m., and tickets are on sale at the door for $100.
This clinic isn’t Hinrich’s first time coaching youth basketball players. Last year, he coached his oldest daughter’s third-grade team in the Big Sioux League.
“It was so hard for me to rewind, coming from playing in the NBA, to trying to teach the very, very basics — and make it fun,” he said, laughing. “It’s good to remember back to when I first started playing.”
It’s poignant that he started his youth basketball coaching career when he did. His father, Jim Hinrich, was his coach from third grade through high school.
“I owe so much to my parents and my family,” he said. “Having that type of mentor in the house, you learned the life values and the basketball side.”
That strong connection to family is one reason Hinrich loves Sioux Falls and his role at Sanford POWER Basketball Academy as much as he does.
“The extra time with family and not being away — that is very important to me,” said Hinrich, who has four children.
As he circles back to talking about the clinic, there’s no doubt that, while you’ll never hear Hinrich proclaim himself a legend, he definitely embodies the program’s values of quality, integrity and character. Those values are a major reason he found a home at Sanford, too.
For 13 years and counting, Legends for Kids has provided learning opportunities for young student athletes to grow and be inspired by providing sporting clinics and camps. Each year, celebrity athletes who represent the Legends goals are brought to Sioux Falls, and the group awards grants to local youth sports organizations.
In 2017, Legends raised a record $210,000 for local youth sports groups, for a total of $1,890,000. More than 4,500 participated in 2017 Legends events, including free clinics like the one Hinrich will lead.
Hinrich is determined to make sure every kid — whether they’ve never dribbled a ball or dream of following in his footsteps and making it to the NBA — comes away with new skills and a smile on their face.
“The most important thing, number one, is to make sure everyone has a good experience,” he said. “Two, we try to teach them things that they’ll need going forward, and three, we hope they want to keep coming back.”
With his work at Sanford — both through Legends and at the Sanford Pentagon — established sports performance training program — Hinrich hopes to instill in young athletes the camaraderie and competition that motivated him throughout his lengthy career.
Over the last several months, he’s been working as a mentor and instructor with athletes in groups and individually.
“Basketball has been a huge part of my whole life,” he said. “It’s nice to be in the gym working with kids. — I love being in the gym. I’ve been able to do some work with high school and college kids, and some pro guys.”
And, of course, his favorite grade-school team, too.
