Luncheons & Speakers

Our Monday luncheons, held at Weber's Inn during the fall and winter sports seasons, are an excellent way to stay informed about current Michigan athletics activities. Members hear coaches from all athletic programs detail their teams, including weekly visits from football or men's basketball coaches, which are complete with recaps and what to expect in the week ahead. Luncheon guests have the chance to ask questions and hear answers from their favorite coaches.
