The Rebel athletic department will host a free sports clinic prior to the Lady Rebel home game versus San José State
The UNLV Lady Rebels and the UNLV Athletic Department will be honoring the 31st annual celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day on Saturday, January 28, by hosting a free sports clinic prior to the Lady Rebel home game later that afternoon against San José State.
The day will start with the free sports clinic, as players and staff from several athletic teams at UNLV, including the women’s soccer, track and field, volleyball, softball and pom teams will be helping to run the event for kids (girls and boys) between 2nd and 8th grades at the Mendenhall Center. Doors open at 12:45 for registration while the clinic starts at 1:30 pm with different stations spread out over the Mendenhall Center and the practice courts at the Cox Pavilion. Following the clinic, all participants are invited to attend the UNLV Lady Rebels contest against San Jose State for free, with the game starting at 4 pm in the Cox Pavilion.
During the Lady Rebel game, UNLV will also have an on-court recognition for three of its four women’s teams that reached NCAA Tournament play in the 2016 calendar year: the Mountain West champion golf and soccer teams as well as the 2016 volleyball squad. The Rebel tennis team was also MW champions in 2016, but will be in competition that afternoon.
The first 200 fans to the San José State game will receive a free UNLV Rebel T-shirt, while all participants in the sports clinic will also all receive a free t-shirt and pizza after the clinic as well. Advance tickets bought online for the game at UNLVTickets.com are just $5, while kids 12 and under are always free at UNLV Lady Rebel contests. Other special events during the contest include a pair of in-game raffles for Lady Rebel Prize packs.
NGWSD is celebrated in all 50 states with community-based events, award ceremonies, and activities honoring the achievements and encouraging participation of girls and women in sports, starting back in 1987. The national-wide celebration is jointly organized by the National Girls and Women in Sport Coalition, and the theme for 2017 is “Expanding Opportunity”.
