Saturday, August 27th (approximately 12:30 registration / event from 1-2:30)
This would be prior to a FROSH scrimmage at approximately 2pm.
Last fall, Head Coach Dean Paul and his football staff conducted an event to promote Football and help women learn more about the game. The event was held on a Thursday night from 6-8:45 and attracted a crowd of about 20 women. The funds raised were donated to a local crisis center which supports resources for local women.
The women who attended the event last year were primarily from the ONU campus community (faculty, staff, wives). We are hoping our Saturday date will allow us to attract more participation directly from the ONU Football family (moms, aunts, friends, etc)! See you there!
