Thank you to our guest speakers and all officials who attended our clinic!

And a very special thank you to the staff at Feather River College for hosting us. This was our first year at this location and hopefully not our last. We had a few glitches which we are aware of and will correct for next year to make it even better! We were especially honored to have officials from California and Eastern Nevada joining us.

Planning for next year's clinic will commence in January. We hope to see everyone again. We always welcome critiques and suggestions to improve it. Thank you and have a great season!

Feather River College Campus

NNFOA 2022 Preseason Clinic is being held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 15th, 16th and 17th at Feather River College in historic Quincy, California, about an 80 minute drive northwest of Reno. 

Perched on a mountain side forested with pine and oak, Feather River College is tucked away in one of California's hidden, quiet spots. Bordering Plumas National Forest, the campus is more than 400 acres and hosts a variety of wildlife, including a resident deer herd. Students often stop in their tracks just to soak in the beautiful setting.
