The National Football Foundation Hall of Fame is sponsoring a "Coaching Academy" at UCLA on Saturday, April 11, 2009 from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Coaches at all levels are welcome to register for the on-field and classroom sessions featuring a discussion of coaching philosophies, game strategies, life skills development, health, training and nutrition, safety and risk management and on-field demonstrations. All registered coaches will also be invited to view the Bruin football scrimmage on Spaulding Field that day from the sidelines.
The Academy will feature Bruin head football coach Rick Neuheisel and his staff. They are expected to be joined by a number of other outstanding current and former coaches from around the West including Bill Redell, Harry Welch, Dave Levy, Jim Brownfield, Dave Buchanan and Jeff Steinberg.
The early registration fee, with a deadline of March, 30, 2009, is $30.00 and will be $45.00 after that and at the door. A continental breakfast is included in the registration fee, as is membership in the National Football Foundation.
