This year went to the UCF spring game to get a little taste of what the season has in store. It was also a chance to see how E liked going to the game. She probably enjoyed dancing to the music between plays more than the game itself, but it is a start.
Last week I had an opportunity to attend the UCF women's football clinic. I had heard good things from previous years and was excited to see it on the schedule again this year. The past couple of years I have been pregnant or nursing, so it was too hard to get away. This year I was able to join about a 100 or so other women to learn a little more about the game and get some time on the field.
|Nothing like hanging out with the Coach.|
Then we headed to the team room for a meeting with the coach. Here we got a chance to chat with George O'Leary himself as well as members of the offensive and defensive coaching staff. This helped me understand what is going on down on the field a bit more.
After the coaches meeting, we headed out to the practice fields. This was my favorite part of the night. We got a chance to catch, kick, throw, run ladders and do all kinds of fun stuff on the field. I almost felt like I was a real football player, well maybe not a real player, but it was fun to be on the field.
|As E would say, "I got it."|
|Throwing with players|
|Shoes for feet bigger than mine.|
After this clinic, I am so ready for some football!
