DeKALB – For the sixth consecutive summer, Northern Illinois University football invites women from throughout the region to the NIU Football Women’s Clinic.

This year’s edition will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 30, beginning at the Jeffrey and Kimberly Yordon Center before moving onto Brigham Field at Huskie Stadium.  

The fun, informative and interactive program is led by NIU Head Coach Rod Carey with assistance from his staff and members of the Huskie football team. After a social hour where participants enjoy drinks and appetizers and a chance to talk to the players, the ladies break into groups for classroom sessions, tours of the NIU football facilities and more. The action then moves to the field, where the ladies are “coached” by the players in different drills.

The event concludes with a “team photo” and, of course, the Huskie Fight Song.

Registration is $60 and proceeds benefit NIU student-athletes through the Huskie Athletic Fund. Register online at http://www.eventbrite.com/e/niu-football-womens-clinic-tickets-12152647897 or call the Huskie Athletic Fund at 815-753-1923. Walk-ups on the night of the Women’s Clinic are also welcome.
