Jasper football staff set to host clinic for women

Posted

The Jasper Vikings coaching staff is hosting its first women’s football clinic. The event is open to ladies of all ages and will be held Saturday, June 8 at the Jasper High School football facility.

“This is the first time that I have held a football clinic for ladies, and I think it is going to be a lot of fun for everyone involved,” Jasper Coach Bryan Moore said. “We want this to be something that shows ladies in our community first-hand what our athletes go through during a typical practice.”

Moore said several women have already signed up for the clinic, including several current players’ mothers.

“I think it will be especially neat for the moms to see what their sons do every day,” Moore said. “It may be eye-opening to some just to see how much goes into what we do to prepare for the season.”

The clinic will take place from 9 a.m. until noon with the participants getting a chance to know Moore and his coaching staff. The ladies will go through a film breakdown as well as some light drills. Participants should wear comfortable clothes, such as athletic wear and tennis shoes.

“We won’t put them through anything too difficult,” Moore said. “We want it to be a fun experience, and we want it to be a learning experience. We expect each participant will leave this clinic with more knowledge of the game of football.”

The cost for the clinic is $20, which includes a lunch and camp t-shirt. All proceeds from the clinic will go to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

“This is another way that our program can give back to our community and to a great organization like St. Jude’s,” Moore said.

Registration will also be allowed the morning of the event.
