Sylva NC 2017 Kids & Pros Clinic
Sylva, NC – 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 their 2nd Western North Carolina Kids & Pros Youth Football Clinic, this time in Sylva, this year! The clinic took place at Smoky Mountain High School July 28 6-9 PM — thank you to Fred Goldsmith and team for making it happen. Youth ages 7 – 13 from Western NC area and surrounding communities had the opportunity to attend the clinic, courtesy of the Western North Carolina Fellowship of Christian Athletes and other 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 from 6:30-7:30PM that evening. 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 is free to athletes in the Sylva area, compliments of the following generous local partners: Western North Carolina Fellowship of Christian Athletes, NFL Foundation, Harris Regional Hospital, Swain Community Hospital, The Coca-Cola Company, SportsZone, Bojangles, WCU, Franklin High School Football, Smoky Mountain High School, and Franklin Ford. Kids & Pros would like to thank these sponsors for their support and participation in the 2017 summer camp season.
