Notre Dame hosted its sixth annual Football 101 event on Tuesday.

Football 101 teaches women 21-and-over the basics of football and how the Irish football program works. The event includes sessions with the Notre Dame coaching staff, drills with players and a reception with head coach Brian Kelly and his wife, Paqui.

Proceeds from the Football 101 event benefit breast cancer prevention, awareness and early detection initiatives chosen by the Kelly Cares Foundation.
