TODAY’S EVENT BENEFICIARIES: KIDS & PROS and the PAT TILLMAN FOUNDATION
About Kids & ProsDeveloping Character and Skills through Athletics
Background: Founded in 2002 by former Atlanta Falcons Linebacker Buddy Curry and Atlanta Falcons Cornerback Bobby Butler, Kids & Pros is a non-profit 501c3 corporation and character-based youth sports organization that engages retired NFL Players in their communities to teach football fundamental skills & character lessons to youth ages 7 – 13. Under Founders’ Curry and Butler’s leadership, Kids & Pros has become one of the fastest growing interactive community programs in the country using an approach that emphasizes football fundamentals, position specific training, and character development. The program features week-long youth football camps and one-day clinics led by former Atlanta Falcons Curry and Butler along with current and former NFL players. All provide hands-on-teaching of skill fundamentals, as well as instruction in the character values engendered by football that are the key to success on and off the football field. The philosophy of Kids & Pros — “to bring communities together through a series of week-long football experiences”– and the motto of Kids & Pros — “developing character and skills through athletics”– are grounded in five core life principles–called GAMECHANGERS: sportsmanship, integrity, excellence, perseverance, and teamwork. Kids & Pros uses positive reinforcement to run active camps so kids get multiple chances to succeed, teaching important take–away lessons using these core principles.
*Kids & Pros has reached over 40,000 families through over 235 events such as camps, clinics and speaking engagements– training over 45,000 young athletes to date through our youth football camps and clinics.
