Earlier this week, Amber and I hit IG Field to run a few drills with some of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.  We didn’t rush the field during a practice; it was part of the team’s, Women’s Club.  The Blue Bombers Women’s Club is a fan club specifically for the team’s female fans.  It’s free to join and the club offers members exclusive events throughout the season. One of those events was last Tuesday’s, On Field Clinic.

Kenny Lawler, Steve Richardson, John Rush, Sean McGuire, Rasheed Bailey and Thiadric Hansen ran Women’s Club members through some film in the players’ lounge before taking the group through a warm-up and team drills. Women’s Club members spent time running routes, blocking, tackling, kicking and throwing. The players were such excellent coaches, that Amber nailed a 10 yard field goal. (Watch your back, Medlock!) We loved the event, it was a great little switch in our exercise routines and we were treated to a poutine bar after. Players stuck around to eat, chat and take photos.

The next event for the Women’s Club happens on August 14th, part of their Speaker Series, it’s an intimate chat with host of the CFL’s, The Grind, Brodie Lawson. 

August 18th, club members are invited to IG Field for Yoga on the turf. The group will be led through a one hour yoga session beginning at 9 a.m. with various players participating. Snacks and mimosas will be served after.
