U-Meet the Athlete

U-Meet the Athlete is the result of an ongoing collaboration between the University of Michigan School of Kinesiology and University of Michigan Athletics. U-Meet the Athlete gives children in grades K-8 the opportunity to participate in sport clinics with University of Michigan student-athletes. Michigan student-athletes donate their time and talent to offer instruction to area kids with the goal of helping them master sport-specific fundamentals.

The cost is $20 per child per session. University of Michigan Credit Union Penny Pioneer participants and children of University of Michigan Alumni Association members receive a $2 discount per session. All proceeds go to the Jeff Reese KidSport Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships for disadvantaged kids to attend the University of Michigan's KidSport Summer Camp.

For additional information or to register for an event, visit the U-Meet the Athlete page.

The goal is to have fun while stressing the importance of mastering sport-specific fundamentals, doing well in school, and living a healthy lifestyle. Space is limited.
