Women get a peek at football life with clinic
UNM will host its 21st annual New Mexico Women’s Football Clinic on July 24th at Branch Field.
The clinic gives women a first-hand look at how the Lobo football program operates. Attendees will also get to meet with head coach Bob Davie and his coaching staff.
“The Lobo Football Women’s Clinic has become a great tradition here at UNM for me and my staff,” Davie said in a statement on golobos.com. “We cherish the opportunity to give the women of New Mexico a glimpse of what Lobo football is all about.”
Activities for the clinic include a question and answer session, a tour of the Lobo football facilities, on-field drills with instructions from players and coaches and a free t-shirt for attending.
“There are a lot of women who are pretty savvy when it comes to football,” assistant coach Jason Lenzmeier said in a statement. “It’s not like we’re trying to introduce them to football; it’s just taking them through a day in the life of a Lobo football player.”
The event costs $30 to participate, and the proceeds go to the Send-A-Kid Program, which allows underprivileged youths to attend Lobo football games.
