Kentucky coach Joker Phillips will take his Gameday Ready Tour to four cities this summer, starting with his hometown of Franklin on June 24. The tour will then go to West Liberty on June 25, Pikeville on June 26 and Louisville on July 15. Registration in Franklin and Louisville begins at 1 p.m. local time, while registration in West Liberty and Pikeville will start at 4:30 p.m.
Each Gameday Ready tour stop will feature the same events, with football activities beginning an hour after registration begins. Admission is free.
The events are open to youth entering their eighth-grade year or below. Youth will get to participate in various football skills and related drills. Each participant will receive a free Gameday Ready gear pack that includes a shirt, water bottle and other UK items (while supplies last).
The football activities are intended for children ages 7 or above. However the event will have a family friendly atmosphere with music, giant inflatable games and other activities for children ages 6 and under.
Phillips has held successful summer tours in seven Kentucky cities — Danville, Hyden, Central City, Louisville, Franklin, Pikeville and Covington — in previous years.
