Now in its seventh year, the Kid Captain program is a partnership between UI Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes to honor these pediatric patients and celebrate their inspirational stories.

All Kid Captains will receive a commemorative jersey, special recognition from UI Children’s Hospital and the Iowa Hawkeyes, and an invitation to a special behind-the-scenes tour of Kinnick Stadium in August.

Due to sideline safety concerns, only children who will be 6 or older by December 2015 may be nominated as a home game Kid Captain. Children of any age may be nominated as an honorary (away game) Kid Captain.

The Kid Captain program is another example of the UI Athletics Department “Doing it right.” To learn more about how the Iowa Hawkeyes “Win. Graduate. Do it Right.” click HERE.
