This program introduces the skills and rules needed to play football. The participants move through drills with their parents working on passing/receiving, running, defense, and blocking.  The "Head Coach" leads their team through practices. Each child must have a “coaching” parent present though that is willing to go through each drill throughout the clinic. Kids progress at their own pace. Equipment used is a nerf football, cones, and flags that remain at the park.  Kids should wear weather appropriate clothing and can bring a water bottle.
