WASHINGTON – The Catholic University of America football team has announced its fall visit day for seniors on Columbus Day, Monday, October 10, at 10 a.m. Prospective student-athletes will have a chance to come campus, tour the facility and find out first hand about the Catholic football program.
If you would like to attend, please rsvp by emailing the football office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Head coach Bill Bachman and staff will be on hand to greet all potential Cardinals and answer any questions they and their families may have.
Current seniors and interested underclassmen will also have a chance to find out Catholic's distinctive style of play and different disciples the coaching staff offers.
Tours will be directed throughout the DuFour Athletic Center and the training facilities. Catholic's weight room is also currently under construction with new, state-of-art equipment and racks being added to the redesigned room.
Catholic will open its new state-of-the-art turf football field opening this fall – which is part of a series of football-related facility renovations totaling about $2 million over the last two years. Additionally, the Cardinals will enjoy its final season in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) in 2016, before moving the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) in 2017.
