BOULDER—The University of Colorado athletic department is offering fans an opportunity to learn the basics of college football straight from head football coach Mike MacIntyre and his staff.

Football 101 for Women will take place on Wednesday, July 16, from 5:30-8:30 p.m., starting in the Varsity Room in Dal Ward and ending on the playing surface itself.  Registrants will have a chance to experience an interactive clinic consisting of meetings, film study and skill stations taught by MacIntyre and the rest of the CU football coaches.  The stations will provide a hands-on learning experience in addition to a lecture format for participants of all skill levels.

“We did it at San Jose State, we've done it at other schools, I first did it at Ole Miss, it was a lot of fun,” said MacIntyre. “They didn't do it at San Jose State, so we started it there.  The ladies really enjoyed it, it gives them more knowledge of the game. They'll learn a lot about the game, and they'll be able to meet our staff.   Some will know a lot about football, and some won't, but either way it really helps them watch and understand the game and understand what our players go through."

The event is intended to provide a comfortable setting for women to learn about and celebrate Buffs football.  The clinic activities are interactive learning experiences covering all aspects of football.  MacIntyre, his entire coaching staff, and select student-athletes will teach all the sessions of the clinic, which will involve active participation by all attendees.

The cost for the event is $50 per person. Each registrant will receive an official Football 101 gift, snacks and beverages and $25 of their fee will go towards the Buffalo Belles/Martha Johnson Scholarship Endowment.

Registration is limited to the first 200 to sign up by Wednesday, July 9. Past Football 101 events have sold out fast, so sign up today.
