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).
Kids & Pros Football camp was free to athletes in the Gwinnett County area, compliments of the following generous local partners: Printing Trade Company, Gwinnett Medical, and other local Gwinnett County sponsors. Kids & Pros would like to thank these sponsors for their support and participation in the 2017 summer camp season.
