Skills & Drills, 7 on 7 competition and 1 on 1 development are just a few features young athletes will experience at the USA Football clinic hosted by USAG Humphreys Family and MWR Saturday and Sunday, May 2 and 3.
Seven USA Football master trainers from across the United States will be on site teaching proper football techniques, skills and fundamentals. Trainers are seasoned NFL players and coaches and include Michael Haynes, Scott Taylor, Donald Davis, Willie Pile, Anthony Stone, George Teague and Billy Elmore.
Area I, Yongsan, Humphreys, Daegu and Osan Air Base high school and youth athletes who are military Family members are encouraged to participate in this fun-filled and action-packed event.
The High School Football Clinic will be held May 2, 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. at the Humphreys High School Football Field. It is open to 8th - 12th graders, including graduating seniors, and the cost is $20 per player and includes a t-shirt, three meals, snack and instruction.
Not only will athletes have the opportunity to learn from USA Football master trainers, but they will have the opportunity to try out for USA Football's National Team.
