The fourth annual Kids & Pros No-Contact Football Camps will be held at two locations in the Savannah area. The first camp will be held on Monday, July 23 and Tuesday, July 24 at Calvary Day School, located at 4625 Waters Ave, Savannah, GA 31404. The second camp will be held on Wednesday, July 25 and Thursday, July 26 at Pooler Recreation Park, located at 900 S Rogers St, Pooler, GA 31322.
Kids & Pros, started by NFL alumni Bobby Butler and Buddy Curry in 2002, is a 501©3 nonprofit grounded in five core life principles called Game Changers for Life: Sportsmanship, Teamwork, Integrity, Perseverance and Excellence.
The coaches (one for every 10 kids) include former NFL players, college players and local high school and youth coaches. Kids & Pros offers the only free, character-based, non-contact football skills camp in the area. Founder and executive director Buddy Curry, a former Atlanta Falcons player, will be on hand to share coaching tips and encourage players’ motivation.
“We have designated two locations in Savannah this year to make the camps more accessible and to reach more kids,” said Curry. “Our goals are for the kids to improve their football skills, practice safer playing methods on the field, strengthen their character, gain self-confidence and become better positioned for long-term success.”
Kids & Pros highlights on-the-field football instruction as the program teaches football fundamentals and safety techniques and integrates the Game Changers for Life in each component of the clinic. It also offers players guidance on proper nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices.
The camps run from 6-9 p.m. each day and are open to kids of all skill levels from ages 7-13. In addition to three hours of instruction each day, a Parent Info Session will be held the first day of each camp from 6:20-7:20 pm.
Sponsors for this year’s camp include Chatham Orthopedics, J.C. Lewis Ford, GenCapital, The Dewitt Tilton Group, Byrd Cookie Company, Neurological & Spine Institute, Memorial Health University Medical Center, SunTrust Bank, Oliver Maner, LLP, Hussey Gay Bell, Walmart and Enviro Vac Industrial Services.
