"Back to the Basics" course teaches women about the sport
INDIANAPOLIS— Women eager to improve their football knowledge gathered at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center Tuesday night for some good, old-fashioned book work. The Colts Women's 101-Beginner Clinic, presented by Reis Nichols, Dairy Management, and Carrabba's Italian Grill, allowed women of all ages to attend a "classroom setting" workshop to learn the basics of the game.

After dinner (provided by Carrabba's), shopping through MainGate's Colts merchandise, and some prize give-a-ways, over 200 participants rotated through three different classes. Colts Wider Receiver, Roy Hall explained the basics of the game and answered questions about playing in the NFL. 20-year NFL Official Mark Baltz walked through the duties of the game's officials and explained some common penalties. Colts Alumni Tight End Geneo Riley educated guests on the duties of each position, as well as some common offenses and defenses.

The ladies left the camp with some additional learning materials, gifts and goodie bags, and one lucky participant won a 32" TV, courtesy of RCA. Some women came so they would have a better understanding while watching a game. Other women were excited to discuss their recently acquired knowledge to friends and family. But everyone left with a better understanding of today's most popular and dynamic sport.
