United Capital is partnering with Linfield College Athletics to host an interactive community series that includes a skill game and post-event autograph session.

This week’s Young Cats Club event runs from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. at Maxwell Field on the Linfield campus.

Following the game, Young Cats Club attendees are invited to meet team members on the field and gather autographs.

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

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. This is the fifth of 15 Young Cats Club event of the 2019-20 school year.
