Student-athletes lead sport mini-clinics

The U-Meet the Athlete program, organized by the Division of Kinesiology, offers area children the opportunity to meet and learn from U-M student-athletes. Each program focuses on a different sport. U-M team members lead a mini-clinic, teaching the fundamentals of their sport and stressing the importance of staying in school and remaining healthy. All proceeds from the $10 clinics go to the Jeff Reese-KidSport Scholarship Fund, which helps disadvantaged children in the Ann Arbor community attend KidSport summer programs.
