13th Annual Youth Football Clinic One Month Away


SHREVEPORT, La. (May 1, 2024) – The 13th Annual Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl Youth Football Clinic is just one month away, as boys and girls from ages five to 13 will hit the field at Independence Stadium on Saturday, June 1 from 8-11 a.m.

The Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl Youth Clinic is a free, non-contact clinic that offers instruction from regional college coaches. Campers will get to learn from coaches from Centenary, Louisiana Tech, Northwestern State, Sam Houston State and Southern University Shreveport. 

Parents are encouraged to register their children in advance at RadianceTechnologiesIndependenceBowl.com/youth-football-clinic. The clinic is limited to 400 participants, so pre-registering by Wednesday, May 29 is the best way to secure a spot. Parents must complete a waiver for their child upon arrival on the day of the event. Following the clinic, all participants will receive a free t-shirt from Sports World and lunch from Whataburger.

Check-in for pre-registered participants and registration, if space is available on the morning of the event, will begin at 7 a.m. at the southwest entrance of Independence Stadium. Parents will need to submit their child’s waiver agreement at this time. The clinic will run from 8 a.m. until approximately 11 a.m.

The Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl Youth Football Clinic is proud to return for its 13th year. The yearly clinic allows boys and girls to learn football fundamentals from college coaches by participating in offensive, defensive and special teams drills. Numerous community partners make the annual Youth Clinic possible, including Willis-Knighton Health, Sports World, Little Works in Progress, Whataburger and D1 Training Shreveport.
