Urban retailer Downtown Locker Room (DTLR) is hosting free, one-day football camps with several NFL players, representing several NFL teams in cities around the country this summer. The camps, which will take place the month of June, will be held in Atlanta (June 12), Chicago (June 19), Charlotte (June 26) and Washington, DC (June 28).
The camps will benefit 300 youth in each market and will include comprehensive football drills for student-athletes entering grades 8 – 12 during the 2010 – 2011 school year. The camps will also offer a complimentary lunch for participants, a fun morning warm-up for parents and a recruiting seminar for parents and student- athletes.
“DTLR realizes sports is often time the dreams of many urban youth,” said DTLR Community Outreach Manager Sherri Goodall. “We want to help them reach their goals; so, we have partnered with several outstanding football players to help them increase their skills on the field. It only makes sense to bring sports, professional athletes and DTLR’s community efforts together in a way benefits everyone involved.”
Camp participants will perform agility drills, offensive and defensive fundamentals broken down by position and seven-on-seven passing drills.
