Mocs Set To Host Chattanooga Football Women's Clinic Friday

Monday, July 21, 2014
Hey Mocs fans, we are now just one week away from the 2014 Chattanooga Football Women’s Clinic.  This year’s event is Friday, July 25 at 6 p.m. at Finley Stadium.  Ladies, we know you love your Mocs, so bring your Blue and Gold spirit and join us for an evening of fun and football. 

Admission is $40 through pre-registration or at the door. UTC students, faculty and staff can get in for $25 per person.  A link for preregistration is available here or at the top of the page.
  

All attendees receive an official Women's Clinic visor.  Door prizes and other awards will be distributed throughout the evening, and all proceeds benefit 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.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. to give participants a chance to mingle with other Mocs fans and coaches, as well as enjoy hors d’ oeuvres and beverages.  The formal part of the night kicks-off at 6 p.m. 

The clinic includes instruction from the coaching staff, both on the field and in the Finley Stadium Club.  Prizes will be awarded for the Punt, Pass and Kick winner, as well as the best touchdown dance.  Participants are encouraged to experience as many, or as few, of the on-field activities as they are comfortable.

New this year is a Chattanooga Football Tailgating Recipe Book.  We need all participants to fill out the form at the top of the page with your best tailgating recipe.  You do not have to attend the clinic to submit a recipe.  We will compile the best submissions before the clinic and have the book ready for each of the participants. 

We encourage you to wear casual attire along with tennis shoes to make sure you can have the best experience!  Parking is available on the skybox side of the stadium, located on the corner of Carter and 20th streets.
