For the third consecutive year, Central Michigan's football program will host a free youth clinic in conjunction with its spring football game.

CMU's spring game is set for Friday, April 15 at 7:30 p.m. at Kelly/Shorts Stadium. Youth clinic registration will begin at 4:30 p.m. in the Indoor Athletic Complex, with the clinic itself getting underway at 5:30 p.m. The Chippewas also will be on hand to sign autographs in the Indoor Athletic Complex beginning at 4:30 p.m.

Both the spring game and youth clinic are free of charge.

The clinic is run entirely by the CMU football team, giving kids an opportunity to meet and interact with their favorite Chippewas while learning basic football skills in a fun environment. Clinic participants will tour CMU's locker room and run through the tunnel into Kelly/Shorts Stadium just like the Chippewas do before every home game.

Several hundred area youth have turned out for the popular clinic each of the past two years.
