Detroit Lions Mini-Clinic?

October 9, 2007: Greg from Detroit, MI
Great Site! On your Detroit Lions page, you’ve posted information on Ford Field Tours and a mini-clinic option that the Lions offer.
What’s the mini-clinic like?

I’m sorry to say that I was unable to participate in a mini-clinic during my Ford Field Stadium Tour. The mini-clinic is a fantastic idea, and fairly unique as I haven’t seen any other stadium tours that offer them. During the 30-minute mini-clinics, your group learns to pass, catch, and kick like the pros with instruction from actual Detroit Lions. Mini-clinics offer fantastic photo opportunities for all involved. The cost is an additional $5.00 per participant, over the already reasonable tour cost of $7.00 for adults and $5.00 for kids and seniors. The Ford Field Website is a bit misleading as it states that you can add a mini-clinic to your stadium tour. When I arrived, I was told that mini-clinics are only available for groups twenty of more and restricted the child participation only. Very disappointing. At Texas Stadium, the Cowboys organization actually works twenty minutes into their stadium tour for time out on the football field where they provide footballs and kicking tees. Fans can throw touchdowns to the Dallas Cowboys endzone or kick field goals through the uprights – this was worth the price of admission!
