NFL Alumni Association Partners with Pro Sports Experience
Hosting Youth Football Camps to Grow the Game
MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. (June 4th, 2015) – The NFL Alumni Association (NFLA) announced a partnership with Pro Sports Experience, providing non-contact summer camps for kids ages 6-14 years old. Former player members of the NFLA will work with the camp coaches and leverage their NFL playing experience to help create a high-quality, safe football learning environment for young players. The weeklong day camps will begin in July 2015.
“Connecting with the community through football is very rewarding, particularly when there is opportunity to work with kids,” said Joe Pisarcik, President and CEO of the NFLA. “I’m thrilled to help bring these national youth football camps to kids across the country. Not only is football an outstanding platform for teaching kids about fitness and athleticism, but it’s also a terrific way to integrate life lessons at a young, influential age.”
Designed to invigorate youth interest in football participation, these camps will provide newcomers with a unique introductory opportunity to the great game of football, yet also provide the experienced campers the opportunity to challenge themselves as they continue to develop on both a mental and athletic level. Camps will also provide an educational platform for parents and local leagues. Both the NFLA and Pro Sports Experience have previously partnered with the USA Football Heads Up program, which ensures that kids are learning the proper techniques crucial for safe tackling.
“These kids are going to learn the values of teamwork, good sportsmanship, perseverance, and integrity,” continued Mr. Pisarcik. “They’ll make memories of a lifetime and have a blast while doing so.”
The community-based plan will bring camps to various markets across the country making high-quality programs conveniently accessible to kids and their parents. NFL Alumni Heroes – former player members with the NFL Alumni – will provide supplemental instruction bringing a unique energy and passion for the sport, paired with their unparalleled professional playing career experience.
“While we have a solid line up of professional coaches and trainers staffed for the programs we organize, the NFLA members are a pivotal piece to the puzzle and will greatly contribute to the success of these camps,” said Tom Finks, President of Pro Sports Experience. “Beyond their ability to teach the game, the NFL Alumni members will have a powerful positive influence to share life skills with the campers.”
