The women of Big Blue Nation will get a double dose of Kentucky men’s basketball on the weekend of the Blue-White Game (Oct. 22) with the return of the Women’s Clinic on Oct. 24.

 

Two days after the Wildcats’ intrasquad scrimmage, females of all ages* will be invited to take a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the program with the always-popular Women’s Clinic.

 

This year’s Women’s Clinic will return to Rupp Arena. The annual clinic will take place from 3-6 p.m.

 

Ellen Calipari, husband of head coach John Calipari and mother of graduate assistant and former Kentucky player Brad Calipari, will be this year’s co-host.

 

Registration is now open with the following options.

 

  • $150 – Clinic participation and signed panel basketball by Kentucky basketball (250 available)
  • $120 – Clinic participation and signed panel basketball by John Calipari
  • $99 – Clinic participation only

 

The Women’s Clinic is designed for females with all levels of basketball knowledge and experience and offers an exclusive inside look at the Kentucky men’s basketball program.

 

Due to COVID-19 safety and health recommendations, masks will be required for all attendees regardless of vaccination status.

 

Each participant will be guaranteed a small group picture with the entire team as well as an opportunity to take a photo with Coach Calipari and Ellen Calipari. Participants will be able to download their picture with the team for free for digital or print use after the clinic.

 

Always one of the highlights of the clinic, participants will have the opportunity to purchase one signed panel basketball during online registration. That ball is included in the above pricing options. Additional balls will not be for sale at the clinic. The only item that will be guaranteed to be signed by UK personnel is the basketball purchased during registration. Clinic attendees will be allowed to bring one additional item to be signed by Coach Calipari only during registration.

 

Please note that, due to COVID-19 precautions, all basketballs will be pre-signed before the event and available to pick up upon arrival.
