The day will kick off with the youth clinic, which is open to children ages 5-12, and will run from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. While there is no fee for the clinic, a free-will donation will take place. Proceeds from the clinic will be donated to 10-year-old Lakken Burzynski, who was recently diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer. She is the niece of current Blugold volleyball player Juliana Burzynski and alumnus Jenny Burzynski.

At 2 p.m., the Blugolds will host UW-Oshkosh and it will be the team's annual Breast Cancer Awareness Day. Representatives from Mayo Clinic Health System and the American Cancer Society will be on hand as part of a cancer resource fair. Throughout the event, contests will take place and there will be a silent auction and bucket raffle. Middle and high school teams that register in advance will be admitted free while the match is also part of the Blugolds' Youth Day, which allows two youths to be admitted free with each paid adult.

To register for the clinic or to sign up your team for the event, email Kim Wudi at wudikm@uwec.edu or call 715-836-4343.
