NIU Athletics is hosting all elementary and middle school girls and boys in grades one through eight. The Power of the Pack Youth Clinic will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. February 28 inside Victor E. Court in the NIU Convocation Center.

The event is free and is before the NIU vs. Toledo women’s basketball game, which tips off at 6 p.m. Youth participants will be granted free admission to the game. Adults accompanying the clinic participants can purchase a ticket for $5 per person.

All participants at the clinic will get the chance to interact and learn skills from NIU student-athletes from the gymnastics, track and field, volleyball, softball, tennis, soccer and golf teams.

In addition, youth participants in the Power of the Pack will receive a free Jacoby Trophy Hoodie (limited sizes) while supplies last.

Following the clinic, the children will be invited to form the entrance tunnel for the NIU women’s basketball team when they take the floor.
