ALBION, Mich. - Ninety children participated in Albion College's free track and field clinic hosted by the Student Athlete Activity Committee (SAAC) Saturday January 25th. The clinic was taught by Albion's proud student-athletes from the track and field and cross country teams, and showcased a variety of events, like shot putting, long jump, and all manner of distance running. In addition, the student-athletes taught kids how to stretch, cool-down and prepare mentally to be at your best in competition.
Lizzie Tuma, Marquette junior, was thrilled to help teach. "The whole team enjoyed running around with the kids and teaching them about our sport. We had a great turnout even though the weather was not the best, and overall the clinic was a success."
SAAC and the men's and women's lacrosse teams are hosting the next clinic, designed to teach kids about lacrosse, this coming Saturday, February 1st. In addition to the free tutelage, MC Sports will have a representative there, raffling off two $10 gift cards to participants, as well as giving a coupon to every kid that comes. There are still a few spots available, so sign up now here.
