Back by popular demand, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers hosted their second Women’s Football Clinic for 2014. Part of the Blue & Gold Women’s Club, the football clinic was an opportunity them to learn first hand about football and the skills required to play the game. Approximately 80 women made it out to Investors Group Field to run through eight different drill stations. There were eight stations and the easiest one was the Photo Booth Station. The remaining stations focused on skills such as yoga (stretching), running, passing, catching, blocking, tackling, kicking and punting. Bomber players led each station drill as they made the women run through the drills. Afterward, the women warmed up with a cup of hot chocolate and pass-around appetizers at a post-clinic reception.

Representing Team Filipino Journal at the Blue & Gold Women’s Clinic was Donna Medina, Zeny Urbano Regalado, Myra Jacinto, Cynthia Reyes, Howie Francisco-Torillos and Marivic Cacha.
