Former Atlanta Falcon’s Linebacker, Buddy Curry and former Falcon’s Cornerback, Bobby Butler hosted their 5th annual Kids & Pros, Inc. “Camp Equip 2013” at Grady High School in Atlanta. Kids from area Boys and Girls Club, YMCAs, and other youth organizations attended the free camps. Curry, a USA Football Master Trainer, incorporates safe tackling techniques from USA Football’s HEADS UP FOOTBALLSM program into the camp along with character based lessons. The safe, non-contact football instruction teaches campers the right way to play and how to avoid injuries, like concussions. Camp instructors included current and retired NFL players who provide hands-on teaching of skill fundamentals, as well as position-specific training; the list of instructors supporting the camp included Bobby Butler (Atlanta Falcons Cornerback 1981-1992), Flipper Anderson (NFL Wide Receiver – various teams 1988-1997), Ken Oxendine (Atlanta Falcons Runningback 1998-1999), Chris Slade (NFL Linebacker 1993-2001) and more. “We were excited to host our fifth Atlanta city football and basketball camp,” said Kids & Pros Founder, Buddy Curry (Atlanta Falcons Linebacker 1980-1987). “We enjoy working with the kids to offer camps with great lifestyle and leadership skills from our professional coaches,” said Curry. The camps conclude on Thursday, June 20th with a superbowl game between the campers, an awards ceremony, and a festival from noon – 1pm to promote healthy and positive lifestyle choices to campers and their parents.
