Lawrenceville GA 2017 Kids & Pros Clinic


    Lawrenceville, GA – Former Atlanta Falcons Linebacker Buddy Curry and Defensive Back Bobby Butler continued their 16th year of Youth Football Camps across the Southeast, in conjunction with Kids & Pros Inc., by hosting a youth football clinic in Gwinnett County at Rhodes Jordan Park! The clinic took place Sunday, July 30 2-5 PM at Rhodes Jordan Park in Lawrenceville — thank you to Doug Washington and his team for turning the clinic around in one week. Youth ages 7 – 13 from the Lawrenceville, Brookwood and surrounding communities had the opportunity to attend the clinic, courtesy of the Gwinnett County Consortium group, headed by Mark Williams. 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, like concussions. A special Parent Information Session was also held from 2:30-3:30PM that afternoon. This session was open to surrounding area youth recreation and school coaches and parents interested in learning more about the following: the impact as a coach as a role model, character building through football, equipment fitting, concussion avoidance, and proper skill training and tackling techniques (the steps of proper football tackling technique and other skills to avoid injuries).
