For the first time in four years L.C. Bird High School will be hosting The Championship Football Coaches Clinic on February 23, 2019.
The event will begin at 8:30AM and conclude at 4:30PM (Registration 8AM).
“We are excited to be having the clinic once again. It’s been four years since we had it last. It’s going to be a big day for football in the state of Virginia. We have high school coaches coming from Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, West Virginia, Maryland, DC, and all over the state of Virginia,” stated Head Coach Troy Taylor of L.C. Bird.
The Championship Football Coaches Clinic will have close to 50 collegiate and high school coaches presenting at the event, which according to Coach Taylor, is more than what Nike or Glazier clinics have hosted in the past.
If you are planning to attend the event, you have until Friday, February 15th, 2019 to prepay and receive a discount. The cost of admission if paid by the 15th is $30/person or $150/staff.
Tickets at the door will be $40/person and you won’t receive a staff rate.
