Dear Football Coach,

It’s that time again – time for the Notre Dame Football Coaches Clinic. And I would love to have you and your staff join us! We have a great weekend of activities scheduled – including formal sessions by every coach on our staff, as well as some visiting coaches, and informal chalk-talk sessions in an excellent atmosphere to get to know the presenting coach and your peers.

The dates of this year’s clinic are April 11th and 12th, and we think it will be a weekend not to be missed!

Our staff will provide new ways of thinking in many areas, but will also illustrate sound fundamentals in all coaching techniques. Their passion and respect for the game will be evident in interaction with you and others in attendance. The clinic format will provide two speaking sessions with each hour of the clinic. Immediately following the last clinic session of each day, you will have the opportunity to see the Fighting Irish practice. We believe our clinic has unique opportunities, and to do this on the most prestigious collegiate football campus in the country is the reason I say, “Our clinic is the opportunity of the year.”

Your clinic fee will provide you:

  • Your choice of at least 15 clinic sessions
  • Two football practice sessions
  • Locker room and stadium facility tour
  • Friday night barbecue
  • Informal chalk-talk session
  • Coffee and doughnuts Saturday morning
  • Exposure to a full slate of exhibitors
  • Clinic T-shirt

To register, please fill out the form in this brochure today. We look forward to meeting you and your staff.

Go Irish!
