The Speed and Quickness Football Clinics took place July 6, 7, and 8, 2009 at the Vidinha Stadium in Lihu'e. They were led by University of Hawaii's head coach, Greg McMackin, and staff (including Kauai High graduate Jett Jasper). There were two clinics per day, one for athletes ages 5 - 12 and the other for those ages 13 and up. Each day saw over 200 participants.
