Seminole Club Kickoff Party

In an abundance of caution for our alumni, friends & fellow community members, Seminole Clubs & Chapters nationwide will not host kickoff parties, game watch parties or any other in person events for the remainder of 2020. We look forward to gathering often once it is safe for all.  Make sure to participate and engage with Florida State virtually all fall. Go Noles!


Kick off football season with your local Seminole Club at one of the following exciting events! (All times are local.)
