Clemson, S.C.– Clemson Student-Athlete Development and Clemson student-athletes are set to host the Be A T.I.G.E.R. Field Day presented by BASF in Seneca, a free youth clinic on Saturday, April 15, 2023, from 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. prior to the Football Spring Game. The event will take place on the Littlejohn Lawn closest to Memorial Stadium, and near the TigerTown Tailgate. The event is free and open to children grades Kindergarten through sixth grade.
The theme this year is “Space,” and fans are encouraged to bring the whole family to take part in this event prior to the Spring Game, which kicks off at 1 p.m. Entry into the Spring Game is free, and no ticket is required for entry.
Be A T.I.G.E.R. Field Day focuses on games and activities to teach the T.I.G.E.R. character traits. Each letter in the word ‘TIGER’ stands for a character trait that is important for young children to understand and practice in their everyday lives:
“T” – Teamwork“I” – Integrity“G” – Gratitude“E” – Education“R” – Respect
Clemson student-athletes participate in leading the event activities, and parents are encouraged to attend with their children, signing them up at registration and helping lead them to each station. Youth who attend and take part in all five activities will receive a Be a T.I.G.E.R. t-shirt (while supplies last).
BASF in Seneca will provide a kid-friendly, STEM-focused interactive activity station, and the Clemson University College of Science will provide the interactive “E-Education” station where you can fling balls with the Physics Department, explore Rubik’s Cubes and math games with the Department of Math and Statistical Sciences, investigate native and exotic bird, reptile, amphibians, and mammal species with the Department of Biological Sciences’ Campbell Natural History Museum, and create chemical reactions with the Chemistry Department.
