This morning has been a GREAT morning already! We are awaiting the arrival of Dan Vooletich of Riddell who is going to work with us on next years order, along with trying a few different pads for some players. We are always looking for ways to get better, and Voo works with many NFL teams along with major college programs, and he is going to show us some things that are happening in the industry. Many shoulder injuries occur without a direct hit to the shoulder area, but once an injury occurs, any hit a player takes in the shoulder compounds the pain and injury. Voo is going to spend the weekend with us and be at our first two practices!
We are very excited about getting Spring Practice started! Our players seem ready too! They have all been by to see us to make sure their helmet and shoulder pads are fitting correctly. This is something we do before every spring practice season.
I hope to have pictures up from our practice later this afternoon.
Now, as far as the exciting news! I have received many calls and emails wanting to know what we are so excited about and I feel like the news is much more exciting to us than it is to others, but none the less, WE ARE EXCITED!
This summer we (the equipment room) are hosting a Football Equipment Clinic and Golf Tournament here in Tucson. This is something I have been wanting to do for a long time and I finally decided to JUST DO IT!!!
I have already lined up some good speakers for some workshops on Helmet and Shoulder pad fitting and safety, and there will more workshops too. The clinic will be held on Saturday, June 19, 2010 and the golf tournament will be the day before.
So, if you are interested in joining us, please mark down June 18 and 19 this summer and come join us in Tucson for a great time. I will be releasing more details in the very near future about both the golf and clinic, so stay tuned. Please email me if you have any questions or suggestions for the clinic. We want this to be a premier event in terms of educational value for football coaches and equipment managers.
Sorry if the "exciting news" was a huge disappointment!
Have a GREAT weekend!
