The Tiger Cub made an appearance at last year’s field day.

Clemson is home to some of the most talented student-athletes in the country. From Heisman-finalist Deshaun Watson to freshman phenomenon Seth Beer, these guys make a splash on the field. However, Clemson athletes also make an impact off the field. This Saturday, Clemson football will hold its annual Spring Game to showcase the team before the season begins in the fall. Everyone will get to see these amazing athletes perform, but many may not know what the student-athletes will be doing prior to the Spring Game. 

Beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 9, children from across the community will have a chance to interact with some of Clemson’s student athletes in the 13th annual “Be a T.I.G.E.R.” Field Day. The day will consist of athletes from multiple sports playing with children and teaching them what it means to be a T.I.G.E.R. The aspects included in that are teamwork, integrity, gratitude, education, and respect, all of which Clemson values in both athletics

and academics.

The day consists of athletes and children playing games that promote these characteristics. It also demonstrates the character of Clemson’s student athletes and serves as a way for them to give back to the community. 

Coordinator Courtney Fallon is excited for the event this year since there are some new attractions coming. 

“As director of the event I am excited to see the turnout we will have this year. We have many new activities and vendors coming to this event. I hope this is one of our largest turnouts and I am excited to see all the children enjoy a day spent with student athletes from Clemson,” Fallon said. 

Admission to the event is free for children in grades K-8 and parents are welcome and encouraged to attend as well. Participants will receive a T-shirt as well as other prizes. The event will be held at Jervey Meadows, the grassy field behind Doug Kingsmore Stadium from 10-2, immediately followed by the Spring Game.
