Savannah GA Pooler Rec 2017 Kids & Pros Camp

    Savannah – Pooler, 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 the 3rd Annual camp in Savannah, GA! The camp took place July 24-25 from 6-9 PM at the Pooler Recreation Center, in Pooler — the first day of camp was cancelled, due to inclement weather, right after everyone checked in and a camp photo was taken—but thank you to the Pooler Recreation Department for quick approvals to move everything inside on the 2nd day. Youth ages 7 – 13 from the Pooler area and surrounding communities had the opportunity to attend the camp, courtesy of local sponsors. 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 Tuesday, July 25th from 6:30-7:30PM. 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).
