Marshall to Host 17th Annual Sweetheart Clinic

Participants will have the opportunity to learn developmental skills in nine women's sports.

Jan. 27, 2014

Registration is now FULL for the 2014 Sweetheart Clinic

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - The Marshall University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics will host the 17th Annual Sweetheart Clinic, Saturday Feb. 15. Girls ages 4-12 are invited to participate in the FREE event. There is limited space available, so participants must pre-register individually on a first-come, first-served basis. No walk-up participants will be accepted.

The Sweetheart Clinic is conducted by Marshall Athletics.  The program began in 1998 in recognition of National Girls and Women in Sports Day. Since its inception, more than 2,000 girls have participated and had the opportunity to learn developmental skills in nine women's sports. Each year the Sweetheart Clinic is made possible through loyal partners, who have a true appreciation for the National Girls and Women in Sports Day. Marshall University would like to thank Pepsi, Strike Zone, Little Caesars, Marshall Recreation Center, Superior Chrysler of Ashland, Valley Health WV WIC Program, Marshall WMUL, Tumble World, Tumble World Encore, Signs Unlimited and Marshall OBGYN for helping to make the 17th annual Sweetheart Clinic a possibility this year.

Participants will be divided into age groups and will rotate through nine different stations, learning developmental sports skills from each of the Marshall’s women’s sports coaches and student-athletes. In addition to developmental skill instruction, participants will receive a free t-shirt.

Check-in for participants will last 9 to 9:30 a.m. in the Marshall University Recreation Center. The clinic will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. Following the clinic, participants will enjoy a pizza party and a Marshall University Cheerleaders-led pep rally. Participants will then be invited to join us with free admission into the Marshall women's basketball game versus Charlotte at 1 p.m. in Cam Henderson Center.

The clinic, including pizza party, pep rally and the women's basketball game, is free to participants. Sweetheart Clinic family members and observers may purchase a ticket to the women's basketball game at the clinic for $3.
