The 2017 Mini Dons program is now open for registration.  The "Mini Dons Sports Program" will include two sessions of soccer; volleyball and basketball.  Registration is now open with the printable form and just bring the form with you at the first session. The first session of Mini Dons will begin on Monday, September 11.


Each child must be accompanied by an adult.  Children cannot be checked in and then left for the duration of the camp.  An adult must be present with them while the session is in progress.  We will have bleacher seating for parents.

Parking:  Lots 12, 13, 15, 16 are all available as are parking structures 2 and 3.    Driving instructions to campus can be found at

Registration Check In:  Registration check in will begin at 5:30 PM for the first Mini Dons session on September 11.  We have 200 spaces for children in Grades 1-4.  When you come into the IPFW Athletics Center front entrance you will see a customer service desk.  You will see a check in table for Mini Dons registration (it will be just past this desk) in front of the entrance to the Athletics Center Fieldhouse.  You will check your child, pick up their official Mini Dons shirt, then they will head to the fieldhouse for instructions from the coaches.  We will continue to register for the camp through the first three sessions.

Tickets to games:  Each Mini Don will be given a free ticket to any Fort Wayne Athletics game with the purchase of a discounted adult ticket of $3.00.  Additional tickets for family members can be purchased at the same discounted rate.  Discounted tickets are available for any regular home game during the 2017-18 season for men's and women's basketball and volleyball at both the Gates Sports Center and Memorial Coliseum.  The mini-dons free and discounted tickets are not available for the Men's Basketball Game at Homecoming (Feb 24).  There is no charge for tickets for outdoor events (baseball, softball, or soccer).


Please look here for any cancellations due to inclement weather. We will post  cancellation information by 3 PM for each day of the program. However because all dates are held inside the Athletics Center Fieldhouse we don't foresee any problems unless it is severe weather.
