We are very excited to announce our First Annual Football Equipment Clinic, which will be held June 19, 2010 here in Tucson.
We already have commitments from some of the industries top people to lead in workshops, ranging from football helmet and shoulder pad safety and fitting, to professional laundry service, and everything in between!
We will also have equipment managers from some of the top programs in the country that will be leading workshops and also be available to answer any questions on important topics.
We have made a commitment to have at least .5 CEU's available for those equipment managers who are certified through the Athletic Equipment Managers Association (AEMA). We hope to have even more available for CEU's.
We realize many certified equipment managers will not be able to make it to the national convention in Chattanooga this summer, so we hope any of those interested will plan a trip to Tucson this summer to help make this annual clinic a success.
We encourage any person that follows this blog to contact me if you are interested in leading a workshop, or have suggestions to help make this the best clinic possible.
We are very close to having our website launched that will provide much more information on this annual event. Stay tuned for more information about the website.
We are also planning a golf outing the day before at Dell Urich Golf Course here in Tucson. We will also have information coming soon about hotel headquarters for those coming from out of town that may want to play golf on Friday, June 18 and stay for the clinic the following day.
The golf outing is for ANYONE who wants to have a lot of fun and have a chance to win incredible prizes. We already have many items that will be given away through raffle tickets that will be given to each participant. Extra raffle tickets will also be available for purchase.
Anyone interested in just playing golf can contact me to get on the list to play. The golf tournament will also be part of the Football Equipment Clinic website. You can sign up as an individual, or as a team. Cost is only $50 per player, and it includes everything from Green Fees, Golf Cart, Tee Prizes and raffle tickets. The golf will begin with a shotgun start at 12:30 on Saturday, June 18, 2010. Again, ANYONE can be a part of the golf on Friday, you do NOT have to be signed up for the clinic to play golf.
This big weekend is sure to be very beneficial for the professional equipment manager and/or football coach that wants to learn more about safety in football equipment, PLUS a lot of fun too.
Please contact me if you are interested at any level of this HUGE event.
