What do I need to bring to the Cliic?
All student-athletes should bring a helmet, cleats, sneakers, t-shirt, shorts, and sunscreen. QBs are encouraged to bring a football for warm-up purposes, but it is not required as we will be using Tufts Footballs in all of our drill work. Helmets will not be available to rent.
Are parents allowed to watch the Clinic?
Yes. We encourage parents to attend if convenient. Due to insurance reasons, it is mandatory that all non-participants at the clinic remain in the stands so that no needless accidents occur.

All position Clinic sessions will have a 45 minute break for lunch in the middle of the clinic. If you have a food allergy, please let us know.
What is the basic structure of the Clinic?
The Clinic will begin with a brief but comprehensive registration. Once complete, we will have our morning Practice. This practice will be two – 1 hour sessions with a break in between. After an hour break for lunch, we will resume with an afternoon practice which will consist of another two – 1 hour sessions with a break in between.
Will there be medical staff on site?
Yes. Fully qualified medical personnel will be on site. In the event of a more serious injury, there are major hospitals located within 5 miles of Tufts University.
What happens in the event of inclement weather?
Safety is our #1 priority. In the event of severe weather (lightning/torrential rains), we must remain indoors until it passes. Therefore, be sure to bring sneakers with you for an indoor surface in case we have to move indoors.
