UConn Football to Host Women's Clinic

Football just isn't for men. Last week, UConn announced that it would host a Football 101 clinic for women on June 25. The idea was hatched by first-year coach Bob Diaco and the hope, according to UConn spokesman Mike Enright, is that it will give participants a chance to learn about the game and hopefully have some fun while doing so.

"It's just meant to be a fun-filled thing," Enright told the Associated Press. "We understand that many of these women may know more about the game than a lot of men. This is something that fans from those with virtually no knowledge of the game to a very intricate knowledge of the game can get something from."

Enright said the program includes meeting the UConn coaching staff, a social hour as well as some light on-field work with the players. It's something that has been successful at other schools and Diaco wanted to bring it to UConn.
