After a successful five-city tour last summer and a trip to Ethiopia this summer, University of Kentucky football head coach Joker Phillips has announced the Gameday Ready Tour will make two additional stops in July in Pikeville and Covington.
Phillips, along with members of the UK coaching staff and UK marketing department, will take the fun and interactive tour to PikevilleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Bob Amos Track on Sunday, July 17 and CovingtonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Randolph Park on Tuesday, July 19. Both stops will feature the same activities with PikevilleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s registration opening at 1 p.m. ET and CovingtonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s registration starting at 4:30 p.m. ET with football activities beginning an hour after registration begins. Admission to both stops is free.
The events are open to youth entering their eighth-grade year or below. Youth will get to participate in various football skills and related drills (agility, pass, kick, 40-yard dash, vertical jump, etc.).
Each youth that participates in the event will receive a free Gameday Ready gear pack that includes a shirt, water bottle and other UK items (while supplies last). There will also be a post-event snack for the youth, while Phillips will address the crowd on how to be Gameday Ready.
The football activities are intended for children seven years of age or above. However the event will have a family friendly atmosphere with music, giant inflatable games and other activities for children age six and under.
Last summer, Phillips held a successful five-city tour in the state of Kentucky, visiting Hyden, Central City, Danville, Louisville and Franklin. Phillips and his wife, Leslie, along with UK players Danny Trevathan and Stuart Hines, as well as UK athletics director Mitch Barnhart and his wife, Connie, spent time this summer in the country of Ethiopia, spreading the game of American football and providing service and food to the people there.
