Women's football is coming back to Notre Dame.
Irish coach Brian Kelly and his wife Paqui will serve as the hosts at the second-annual "Football 101" event on June 14 at Notre Dame. The event will run from 5-10 p.m. Minimum age is 21.
Football 101 will give women a tutorial on the basics of football, allow them to meet the Irish coaching staff, learn more about the Notre Dame football program, get a behind-the-scenes look at the program's athletic facilities, and enjoy a reception with food provided by some of Michiana's best restaurants.
A reception will occur on the grounds of The Guglielmino Athletics Complex. Drinks and appetizers will be provided by some of Michiana’s top restaurants plus patrons will be able to meet Notre Dame’s coaching staff and browse through items for the evening’s raffle.
After the reception, participants will be split into groups and travel from station to station outside at LaBar Practice Complex and inside the Guglielmino Athletics Complex. On the practice fields, the Fighting Irish coaching staff will teach the basics of football form and technique, including passing, catching and kicking footballs. Inside the Guglielmino Athletics Complex, other members of the coaching staff will teach the basic X’s and O’s in the football team meeting rooms to participants where they’ll learn more about how missed blocks and route-running can make the difference between a sack and a touchdown.
