WOMENS BASKETBALL TEAM HOSTS FUTURE HUSKIE CLINIC ON NOVEMBER 16
DeKALB, IL---For most
basketball fans, next Saturday (Nov. 16) provides a sneak preview of the
Northern Illinois University womens basketball team in action as
the Huskies meet Gees Clippers in an exhibition game. Younger NIU
followers can look even further in the future that morning by taking part
in the annual Future Huskie Clinic at the Convocation Center.
The clinic begins
at 10 a.m., with veteran head coach Carol Hammerle and her team offering
instruction for 90 minutes. At 11:30, the Northern Illinois womens
basketball team gives a 15-minute demonstration followed by a question-and-answer
session with clinic attendees. Lunch is included, along with fun and games
before the Huskies 2:05 p.m. exhibition contest.
For $10, campers receive
a Future Huskie t-shirt along with a Northern Illinois womens basketball
media guide, schedule card and the opportunity to serve as a ballperson
and sit on the bench with the Huskies during home games. Future
Huskies can watch NIU throughout the 2002-03 schedule for free by
wearing the t-shirt to regular-season home dates.
The clinic is available
to boys and girls aged 13 and under. A parent permission release and health
form must be completed before the clinic begins, and can be obtained through
the NIU womens basketball office. To register for the Future Huskie
Clinic, contact Stacy Krueger at (815) 753-0586.
