If you are a coach, or even a fan that wants to learn from one of, if not the best Air Raid professors in the sport, make plans to attend the Foothills Air Raid Clinic; which will be held on April 26th and 27th at the Ramada Inn in Statesville.
Not only is this clinic a must-attend event for offensive minded coaches, there will also be a defensive clinic as well that is geared towards stopping Air Raid concepts.
Clinic organizer Jason Lippard has put together an All-Star list of coaches to include the Godfather of the Air Raid, Hal Mumme, who is the keynote speaker of the event.
“We have put together a quality clinic with both offensive and defensive coaches with numerous state championships,” Lippard says. “For the price, that includes three meal, I think you would be hard pressed to find a better value for a coaches clinic.”
The cost of the clinic will be $75, but will include dinner on Friday night, and also will include breakfast and lunch on Saturday. The Ramada Inn also has a coach’s rate of $64.95 a night.
The event begins on Friday night with registration starting at 4:00 p.m. and dinner being served at 5:00 p.m. Hal Mummee will kick things off at 6:00 p.m.
