HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - UConn’s football program is offering a clinic to teach its female fans more about the game.

The “Women’s Football 101 Clinic,” was proposed by head coach Bob Diaco and is scheduled for June 25 at the school’s training facility in Storrs.

Spokesman Mike Enright said it is in not intended to be condescending and will offer women a chance to learn everything from the basic fundamentals of the game to its finer intricacies.

“It’s just meant to be a fun-filled thing,” Enright said. “We understand that many of these women may know more about the game than a lot of men. This is something that fans from those with virtually no knowledge of the game to a very intricate knowledge of the game can get something from.”

The program includes a meet-and-greet with the coaching staff and a social hour with a cash bar. The participants also will take the field and do some light drills with the staff and players.



Enright said it’s something other schools have done and UConn believes can help expand its fan base.
