Numbers spike for Kentucky women’s clinic

In case you needed any additional proof that Kentucky football interest is up, here’s some more … Nearly 300 more people are registered for this year’s women’s clinic than attended last year (121) and that number likely will go up before the event, scheduled for July 27 at Commonwealth Stadium. UK is reporting that about 420 women have signed up for the clinic so far this season. Kentucky usually caps number at 500, so limited space is available still.

At the end of last May, UK had three women registered for the football tutorial with the coaches and by the end of this May, that number was more than 120.

For more information and a link to the online registration system, go to: The cost of the clinic is $75 and is designed for women with all levels of football knowledge. Coaches will give presentations and do short question and answer sessions.
