Grinnell College teams up with local youth via THE ZONE fan club
Grinnell College Athletics recognizes that one of its most important supporters is the community youth. Because of that, the College wants to acknowledge this group by offering a special program for young Pioneer fans.
THE ZONE is a fan club for youth (eighth graders and younger), which provides special benefits to those who enroll. With an annual membership fee, ZONE members receive:
*A ZONE t-shirt
*Three season passes (fall, winter and spring)
*Invitations to special ZONE events, such as sports clinics, pizza parties, etc.
The annual fee is $10 for an individual or $15 for a family (all immediate family members eighth grade and younger).

Benning can also be reached via e-mail at benning[at]grinnell[dot]edu. There will also be a registration at this weekend's basketball games at Darby Gymnasium.

“It’s great to see so many young families in attendance at our sporting events,” said Benning. “The players and coaches appreciate their support – it’s part of what is special about being a college in a small town. THE ZONE is a great way to get the youth involved with Grinnell College athletics and making them more visible in the stands. I’d love to see every kid at our contests in a red ZONE t-shirt!”
