‘Guts, Glitter’ event raises knowledge of games, funds for athletics program
CHARLO – What happens when you put moms on the football field and dads on the volleyball court? A fun filled Saturday morning where each enjoyed learning the fundamentals of the sport.
The 4th Annual Guts and Glitter Women’s Football Clinic and 1st Annual Dudes and Divas Men’s Volleyball Clinic held Aug. 18 raised just over $500 for the Charlo Schools Athletics Program.
“It was an absolute success,” said organizer Christy Bockman. “The support we have is amazing and the time us parents get to spend with our kids is invaluable. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
The day kicked off with a light breakfast followed by a coaches’ meeting where the moms and dads learned the finer details of each sport.
The women then took to the football field to go through some passing and hitting drills, while the men hit the court for some bump, set and spike action.
Lindsey Dwelle enjoyed the chance to spend some time and learn a few things about football with her oldest son, Viking running back Isaiah Allik. “It was a super fun day,” Dwelle said. “I really liked the field time even though I can’t catch a ball to save my life.”
The Vikings will open their season on the road at Plains on Saturday, while the Lady Vikings open their season at home when they host Seeley-Swan on Friday.
