I am very excited for you to be attending my first annual John Mallee Coaches Clinic at the University of Illinois Chicago this November 19-21,2021. This email includes some information in regards to parking, food options, and the check-in process for the clinic. I am very proud and honored to host my clinic at UIC which is where I had the fortune of playing my college baseball.
The clinic is being held in the indoor baseball/softball practice facility at UIC. The building address is 901 West Roosevelt, Chicago, IL 60608
Below is a photo highlighting the area to park. That area is highlighted in yellow. The building where the clinic is being held is highlighted in orange. Once you park you will cross Roosevelt road and enter the building.
When you first walk into the building signage will point you to where to go to the check-in table, which is located inside the turf area, which is off to your right from the hallway you walk. Take note of the bathrooms in this hallway as these are the restrooms available throughout the day. As you walk down the hallway the door to enter the turf area is on the right. We will have signage to direct you where to go. The check-in table will be divided alphabetically and you will get your welcome packet and pass. Find seating and get ready to enjoy what will be an amazing coach’s clinic. Check-in starts at 8:15 am on Saturday and the clinic will begin at 9:00. There will be no need to check-in for Sunday unless you were unable to make it Saturday.
There are a variety of lunch options within walking distance of the clinic building. Attached you will find a map that shows the easiest areas to walk to obtain lunch. The yellow and brown lines show pathways that you can walk along to the food options. We have highlighted some of our favorite and fastest food options and they are as follows
