Youth Football Camp Seeking Registrants and Sponsors, Says Local Gator Club

VIERA, Florida – A University of Florida football player from the 2006 national championship team, who also played for the San Francisco 49ers, will be hosting a football camp at Viera High School.

 Camp dates are June 24-25 (Ages 6-13) and June 26-28 (Ages 14-18) from 8:00 am till 12:00 pm each day.  Enrollment fees are $65 (ages 6-13) and $85 (ages 14-18) and can be purchased at the website below. Late registration will also be held the day of the event.
The Joe Cohen Elite Football Camp is also being sponsored by the Space Coast Gator Club.  All children that register before June 13 will receive a camp T-shirt. Camp attendees also need active shorts and sport cleats to participate. The Space Coast Gator Club will provide volunteers to support the event.

Proceeds will be used to host the first annual backpack drive for under-privileged youth, in conjunction with G.Y.M. Life. Backpacks will be filled with notebooks and pencils and other school supplies for needy children in Brevard County.
“Being a lifelong Brevard County resident, I felt that it was necessary for me to give back to the community that gave me so much,” said Cohen.

Fundamentals will include speed drills coached by Parisi Speed School and football drills that improve individual performance on the football field. Some 7-on-7 football scrimmaging will also be conducted. Local high school and Pop Warner coaches and current and former college and NFL players will be on hand to encourage the attendees during these drills.
Working alongside Joe Cohen will be Reggie Nelson, Cincinnati Bengals safety and former Gator player; Andre Fluellen, former Chicago Bears player; Ray Buchanan, former Seattle Seahawk and University of Miami player; Earl Everett and Jason Watkins, former Florida Gator players; and Neefy Moffet, former FSU player.

Corporate sponsors and personal donations are needed to make this event a success. Donations and sponsorships will assist in the enrollment fees for under-privileged children so they may attend this event. Volunteers are needed to help during the weeklong camp.
For further information, volunteer opportunities, to make a donation or to sign up for the camp visit or email  or call 321-474-0155.
