Registration extended for womens football clinic

STATESBORO — The deadline to register for Georgia Southern’s Second Annual Women’s Football Clinic, sponsored by East Georgia Regional Medical Center in Statesboro, has been extended to July 11.
Limited spots remain for the clinic, which is set for 12:30 p.m. July 16 at Paulson Stadium, Bishop Fieldhouse and the Ted Smith Family Football Center.

There is a 200-participant limit.
“It was a huge success last year,” said Gleen Hart, associate athletic director for marketing and fan experience. “With the success of the past football season with the GoDaddy Bowl victory, with hiring Coach (Tyson) Summers, I’m anticipating an all-time high in excitement, an all-time high in Georgia Southern football.”

The 2016 Women’s Football Clinic includes:

• Mix and mingle with other ladies of Eagle Nation

• Special welcome from head football coach Tyson Summers

• Fashion show

• Instruction on the basic rules and strategies of football

• On-field drills led by the GSU football coaching staff (optional)

• Georgia Southern gift bag with official camp T-shirt

• Door prizes

• Light lunch served at 11:30 a.m., prior to clinic

• Open bar

• Group photo with coaches

• All participants will receive Georgia Southern seat cushions compliments of CORE Credit Union.

It is recommended that all participants dress casually with athletic shirts, shorts and sneakers.
Doors open for registration at Bishop Fieldhouse at 11:30 a.m.

“This year, the addition of the turf adds another component to it,” Hart said. “We’re going to increase the classroom instructional times so the ladies get more hands-on instruction of the in and outs of football and terminology and so forth. We’re excited about it and looking forward to making it even bigger and better this year, and it should be a good event.”

The cost of the clinic is $25 per person (GSU faculty and staff are eligible for a discounted rate of $20 per person).
All participants must be 18 or older (21 and older with proper ID for the open bar).

Participants must register online and bring payment to clinic. You can register at For more information or questions, contact Georgia Southern Marketing at 912-478-1500 or email
