NFL and Buffalo Bills sponsor football camp at HWS

The NFL and the Buffalo Bills are offering a free Junior Player Development Clinic this week, from Monday, June 23 through Thursday the 26th, on the Hobart and William Smith Colleges campus. Open to boys and girls ages 12, 13 and 14, the clinic will be held each night from 5:30 until 9 p.m. Developed to provide a template for high school football programs, as well as additional access to youth tackle football, the program provides step-by-step instruction for every playing position in a fun and engaging environment. The program integrates on-field skills development with life skills and character development. As they plan for high school interscholastic activities, participants receive instruction from NFL-selected high school coaches, as well as counseling focused on life skills. Each theme is addressed through the context of football with instructors making connections and applying the skills on the field, in school, at home and in the community. In addition, through a development program that provides more than 60 hours of practical training, coaches will learn how to teach game fundamentals and creatively and effectively apply life skill messages. Clinic participants will be coached by selected college and high school coaches and players with possible visits from members of the Buffalo Bills.
