Hawaii football coaches to take part in clinics
The University of Hawaii football coaching staff is scheduled to participate in clinics for youth and high school level players next month.
The dates are July 21 and 22 for ages 5-12 and July 24-27 for ages 13-18 at the UH football practice field. The sessions are two hours each.
The clinics are being facilitated by Hawaii Speed & Quickness and Pacific Islands Athletic Alliance.
UH coaches have been instructors in various camps, but this is the first time they are doing so en masse in seven years, said Doris Sullivan of PIAA.
Warriors head coach June Jones is slated to make an appearance at the first session for the high school age participants. Assistant coaches will provide one-on-one instruction for both age groups.
"We'll work on basic techniques and fundamentals of throwing," Warriors quarterbacks coach Dan Morrison said. "I'm sure we'll do some seven on seven, too."
UH linebackers coach Cal Lee said the instructors will stick to basics, especially with the younger group.
"Just fundamentals and make it fun for the kids," Lee said. "We'll teach them basics and let them run around with the ball. You really get down to the nitty-gritty basic fundamentals."
A one-time fee covers the two two-hour sessions for the younger participants and the four two-hour sessions for the older ones.
Players should wear regular athletic shoes. Pads will not be used.
The clinics are limited to 200 participants. Early registration is available at $40 per individual and a $30 per-athlete team rate (10 or more players) for the younger group and $75 and $60 (15 or more players) for the older group. Day-of-event registration is $65 and $55 (team members) and $100 and $85. Registration is at 8 a.m. on the first day for both age groups and the sessions start at 9 a.m. each day.
