June 11, 2010

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- University of Kentucky football head coach Joker Phillips is taking the GAM3DAY READY message across the Commonwealth later this month as part of the inaugural GAM3DAY READY Tour.

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 (punt, pass, kick, 40-yard dash, vertical jump, etc.).

The four cities included on the tour are Hyden (Old City Park) on June 24, Central City (Broad Street Downtown Lot) on June 27, Danville (Millennium Park) on June 28 and Louisville (Shawnee Park Great Lawn near Broadway) on June 29. Admission to all four tour stops is free.

Registration opens at each tour stop at 4:30 p.m. with the football activities starting at 5:30 p.m. and running for about 90 minutes to two hours. All times are local.

Each youth that participates in the event will receive a free GAM3DAY 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 and coach Phillips will address the crowd.

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.
