Danville VA 2017 Kids & Pros Camp
Former Atlanta Falcons Defensive Back Bobby Butler and Linebacker Buddy Curry, continued their 16th year of Youth Football Camps across the Southeast, in conjunction with Kids & Pros Inc., by hosting the 10th annual #youthfootball camp and parent information session in Danville, VA — courtesy of local sponsors. In spite of inclement weather on day two, the three night skills camp ran from 6-9 PM each night with close to 150 youth ages 7 – 13 from the Dan River area, and surrounding communities, passing, running, and learning proper tackling techniques. Curry, a USA Football Master Trainer, incorporates safe tackling techniques into his clinics along with life skill lessons. The safe, non-contact football instruction teaches campers, parents and coaches the right way to play and how to avoid injuries, impact as a coach as a role model, character building through football, equipment fitting, concussion avoidance, and proper skill training and tackling techniques.
