UK CLINIC SCHEDULE  [New]
 

The UK Fall Clinic schedule is now available! Ideally, each team will take the opportunity to attend at least two of these valuable and unique sessions during the fall season.

To reserve a slot send an email to asstwebmaster@ayso85.org.

Please submit both a first and a second choice with the coach name, division, team# and requested slot#s. The coordinator will assign slots on a first-come basis and post it on the website within 24 hours so you can see confirmation your slot has been assigned. 

Coaches are required to attend the sessions with player medical release forms. It's a great opportunity to learn some new techniques and training exercises that you can use throughout the year. 

If after 7:00 pm on Fridays any slots for the following week are unassigned, those slots will be opened to all coaches to sign up. Coaches may send a request to the UK Clinic Coordinator and they'll be assigned on a first-come basis. In this manner, you may attend as many clinics as you like.

NOTE: All Sessions will be at Heroes Park on the West end near the railraod tracks area
