The ninth annual John Calipari Women’s Clinic is set for Oct. 29 from 1-4 p.m. The clinic will take place in Rupp Arena for the second consecutive year.
Registration is available online. Interested participants are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible due to limited spots available. The past six clinics have been sold out.
The clinic is designed for women with all levels of basketball knowledge and experience and offers an exclusive inside look at the University of Kentucky men’s basketball program. The cost is $100.
The clinic is open to women only. Recruitable-age females (currently in grades 7-12) are not permitted to register for or attend the clinic, per NCAA rules.
Each participant will be guaranteed a small group picture with the entire Kentucky men’s basketball team. Participants will be able to download their picture for free for digital or print use after the clinic.
Participants will also be able to purchase basketballs during the online registration process to be signed by UK personnel. Clinic attendees will be allowed to bring one additional item to be signed by Calipari.
Check-in for the Women’s Clinic will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Oct. 29. Participants should enter the main gates of Rupp Arena off High Street for registration.
Parking is free and will be available in the High Street lot. Entrance to the parking lot is through Gate 1. Attendees must park in a legal parking spot.
Throughout the designated check-in time, attendees can enjoy a self-guided tour of Rupp Arena, including the UK men’s basketball locker room. Men’s basketball staff members will be stationed throughout the facility for directions and questions. Also during registration and the clinic, concession stands will be open to purchase food and beverages.
Following check-in, the women’s clinic will begin at 1 p.m. with the introduction of the 2017-18 UK men’s basketball team. Also included are scheduled presentations by staff and players on the inner workings of the program, as well as a Q and A with Calipari, UK coaches and staff members.
