CLEMSON -- Going to the big football game, but don't have tickets for the little ones? They can enjoy a day of fun in Clemson, too, in the university's new "Gymsitter" service at Fike Recreation Center.


Children ages 3 to 10 can participate in the program, which will be available during three Saturday football games: the Wake Forest game on Sept. 4, the Utah State Homecoming game on Oct. 16 and the South Carolina game on Nov. 20. The fee is $45 per child for each game if paid in advance and $55 per child the day of the game, if space is still available.


Activities will include relay races, swimming, making crafts, storytelling and snack time. The children will be supervised by the campus recreation staff, which includes university employees and graduate and undergraduate students. All staff members are trained in CPR, first aid and automated external defibrillator use.


"The entire family can come for the weekend. Not only does Fike serve Clemson students, but now we can serve their younger brothers and sisters as well," said Susan Pope, fitness and marketing director for campus recreation. "We want to give children a taste of the Clemson experience."


To register a child for Gymsitters, contact Fike Recreation Center at (864) 656-6559 or download the registration form on the campus recreation Web site at http://stuaff.clemson.edu/campusrec. Forms and payment must be faxed or mailed and received no later than the Monday before the game for the early registration fee.
