More than 200 participants made their way into Kinnick Stadium on June 8 for the third-annual Ladies Football Academy. The group raised $230,523 this year, bringing the three-year total to $717,523.

The campers spent their day working on skills and drill sessions with the assistant coaches of the Iowa football team. They also took part in a performance test and had a photo and autograph session with Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz.

The participants began their day registering for the event at the indoor practice facility before going to a nutrition clinic and strength training in the Hayden Fry Football Complex. From there, a charter bus drove them to Kinnick Stadium.

“Every time we’re in Kinnick Stadium, we’re competing, and somebody wins and somebody loses,” Ferentz said in a release. “Today, everybody wins.”
