The free event for kids 5-15 years old will be held at Rockledge Park on Saturday July 27 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.
Mike Cadore, the Criminal Justice Coordinator for the Institute of Public Safety at Eastern Florida State College and a reservist police officer for the Rockledge Police Department is coordinating the event.“The annual I GOT Skillz* football clinic is another way to teach life skills while learning the FUNdamentals of football, fitness and team work,” Cadore said.
“As a public servant, educator, citizen and more importantly a parent, it is essential that we show our youth the right way. No we don’t have all the right answers, but actions speak louder than words!”Registration can be completed that morning beginning at 9:00 am or online at https://www.secure-sam.com/
Cadore added, “Partnering with the NFL, the FUNdamentals format introduces children to football by teaching basic skills in a FUN and energetic environment through a series of drills to show passing, catching and running skills in a non-contact setting. The twist is we spend a few moments talking to the kids about life choices, education, health and our profession.“Finally, we must keep in mind, if we don’t serve our community now, don’t expect your community to serve you later.”
Lunch and a shirt will also be provided.For more details and quotes, contact Cadore at 321-302-3238 or www.usafootball.com.
