One of the highly anticipated events of Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl week is set for Wednesday, December 19 as the Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl Youth Football Clinic, sponsored by Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), will take place from 3:30-5:00 p.m. at the fields next to old Thomas A. Robinson Track and Field Stadium. The clinic is free and open to boys and girls from ages 7-13, and it is held in cooperation between the Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl and USA Football.
A USA Football coach along with student-athletes and staff from Florida International University (FIU) and Toledo football teams, along with representatives of the Commonwealth American Football League (CAFL), will run the clinic, teaching football fundamentals and safety techniques. Last year’s clinic, the fifth annual one, was a success as student-athletes gave back to the youth of The Bahamas using football and fun to interact with participants involved in the event, showing what exercise and hard work can attain.
Registration will take place from 2:30-3:30 p.m., and the clinic will follow from 3:30-5:00 p.m. Each registered participant will receive a 2018 Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl T-shirt and tickets to the 2018 game on Friday December 21. Each participant must submit a completed event waiver prior to participation. Waivers can be completed during the one-hour registration period.
The Bahamas’ Ministry of Education will provide bus transportation for the youth football clinic at 2 p.m. to the national stadium and return after the event from the following locations – east side – Prince Charles Shopping Center; and westside – South Beach Shopping Center.
