Lady Spartan Football Clinic 2012!

Every year, the Spartan coaches and their wives put together what has turned into a really fantastic fundraiser clinic for women. This was our 4th year I believe in running this clinic with the current staff and I don't know how they do it but it gets better and better every year! We have ladies who come back every single year and this year the clinic was sold out in less than 5 days! It can only accommodate 220 people so keep on the lookout next year if this looks like something you would like to do! It's a great day of visiting the football facilities, meeting the coaches, running through drills with some of the football players as well as coaches and a fun cocktail and hors d'oeuvres hour with a fantastic silent auction at the end with great items to bid on! A few of those items included the Nike pro combat football helmet worn for the MSU/UM game this year, a trip traveling with the team to the Michigan game this year, sideline passes for some of the games...the list goes on. Every year Coach and Becky Dantonio choose a different charity and we present the check to that charity at the Children's Miracle Network telethon.

Here are a few highlights from this years clinic (photos by Matt Mitchell MSU photographer extraordinaire!)

At the end of the clinic everyone gets together for a photo of the group. Can you find me??? ;-)

The ladies start out watching some film and getting to know the plays. Becky introduces the clinic

one of the great silent auction items

Time to run some drills in the indoor facility aka "The Weave"

love this photo of one of the ladies chasing down Taiwan Jones!

my beloved Coach Hoke yelling at one of the ladies during the weight room rotation to "KEEP GOING!! DID I TELL YOU TO STOP?!!"

demonstrating the rope looked brutal!

no matter what your age you are assured a GREAT TIME at this clinic!

and a chance to hobnob with everyone!

and at the end we get a team chant by Fou and Will that they taught to all of the ladies

A great day for a great cause this year, the MSU and Greater Lansing foodbanks. 

Be sure to watch out this time next year for the date on the MSU Spartans website! It fills fast!
