Spring football practice has started, it’s time for March Madness and baseball is in full swing, that means it’s time to get geared up for the 2016 Prowl & Growl coaches’ tour! This annual event takes place in April and May of each year in a joint effort by IPTAY, the Clemson Alumni Association and the Clemson Forever Fund and is hosted by local Clemson Clubs and IPTAY Representatives. The Prowl and Growl tour enables Clemson staff and administrators to share and provide updates with the Clemson Family across the region of all the happenings going on at Clemson over the past year. The highlight of each tour stop is head football coach, Dabo Swinney and head basketball coach, Brad Brownell. At each meeting, fans have the opportunity to obtain autographs, ask questions and take photos with Coach Brownell and Coach Swinney! During dinner, attendees then hear the latest inside news from the coaches as to what is going on inside their program as they prepare for the upcoming year.
Prowl and Growl will be sure to excite this year and we are happy to announce the following tour stops for 2016. Click on the city below nearest you for individual tour stop details and ticket information.

After a year of historic athletic success at Clemson, record crowds are expected for the 2016 Prowl and Growl tour. Therefore, the Clemson Alumni Association, Clemson Forever Fund and IPTAY have announced an improved plan for the traditional coaches’ autograph session. This year to help with the amount of time spent in line for autographs, each person attending the meeting will have an opportunity to receive one (1) autograph from each coach. (Please note that each autograph session will last as long as time permits, which may not allow for all in attendance to receive an autograph.) Attendees will be able to provide their own personal item or can have a poster provided by Clemson to have autographed.
In addition, new for the 2016 tour, Clemson is excited to announce that there will be a professional photographer on hand to take pictures of fans with the coaches when receiving an autograph (no personal pictures will be allowed). Those who wish to have their picture taken will be able to download the picture for free after the event. Each family will be limited to one picture with both Coaches.
Don’t miss out on your chance to get updates from athletics, watch highlight videos, participate in a Q&A and get autographs. For more information on dates, locations, and to learn how to purchase tickets please click HERE.
