Coach Huesman and his staff will be on hand to provide an exciting evening of football and fun for all of the ladies in the Chattanooga area.

The formal part of the night kicks-off at 7:00 p.m. with on-field coaching and instruction.  There is a tour of the Mocs locker room, as well as demonstrations of the Mocs’ positions, plays and penalties.  Participants are encouraged to experience as many, or as few, of the on-field activities as they are comfortable with. 

Afterwards, there will be a discussion panel and Q&A session with the spouses of the UTC staff, including Coach Huesman's wife, Amy.

The cost for admission is $40 through pre-registration or at the door. UTC students, faculty and staff can get in for $25 per person. All attendees will receive an official women's clinic T-Shirt.  Door prizes and other awards will be distributed throughout the evening.

All proceeds from the 2013 Women's Football Clinic will go to support the Huesman's Huddle program. Entering its fifth year, Huesman's Huddle is a very popular allotment of tickets donated by Mocs fans, alumni and supporters that are used to provide free admission to home football games to underprivileged fans.
