Young Cats Club

Boys and girls ages 17 and under are invited to take part in a series of Young Cats Club events throughout the 2019-20 school year. United Capital, the event’s signature sponsor, is partnering with Linfield College Athletics to host an interactive community series that includes skill games and post-event autograph sessions.

It’s a unique opportunity for kids to experience in person what it’s like to attend a Linfield athletic event and interact with college student-athletes. A total of 15 Young Cats Club events are planned covering every collegiate sport Linfield offers.

After each contest, Young Cats Club attendees can meet and gather autographs from Wildcat student-athletes.

Admission to all designated Young Cats Club events is free. Every YCC participant will receive a free T-shirt and special autograph book.

Kids who attend a minimum of eight designated Young Cats Club events and collect at least one student-athletes autograph from any eight sports are eligible to enter an end-of-year drawing for a valuable prize.
