Radford Athletics is offering children in grades eight and younger a way to become involved in the fun and excitement of Radford athletics – the Highlander Kids Club.

The 2014-15 Highlander Kids Club membership features many exciting benefits including an official club T-shirt, drawstring backpack and opportunities to meet the RU teams, coaches and mascot.

Membership also includes free admission to all regular season home athletics events and invitations to special members-only events. Club members can enjoy unique opportunities to be an official ball kid at home basketball games and a chance to throw out the first pitch at a Highlanders home baseball or softball game.

"The Highlander Kids Club is a great way for kids in the community to be more involved in RU athletics and also more involved in Radford University," said Athletics Assistant Director of Marketing Kyle Rhoads.

An individual membership to the Highlander Kids Club is $20. A full list of membership benefits can be found at Members will receive membership packets within two to four weeks. Yearly membership is good from August 2014 until July 2015.

"This isn't just an affordable way for kids to attend this year's basketball games, it's also an opportunity to gain memorable experiences they might not have otherwise," said RU Men's Head Basketball Coach Mike Jones.
