Lynchburg VA 2017 Kids & Pros Camp

    Former Atlanta Falcons Linebacker, Buddy Curry and Defensive Back Robert Moore were in Lynchburg to host close to 200 local athletes at the 7th Annual Kids & Pros Youth Football Camp in Lynchburg, Virginia June 19-21, 2017. After a stormy first day, the camp kicked off strong with great anticipation and local participation! Kids & Pros, a non-profit dedicated to promoting safe football techniques and character building, held the free camp June 20-21, 6:00-9:00 PM at City Stadium Complex in Lynchburg. In addition to two days of football instruction, there was a special Parent Information Session on June 21 from 6:30-7:30 PM. The special session, originally scheduled for Monday, before it was rained out — was open to surrounding area youth recreation and school coaches and parents interested in learning more about the following: the impact of a coach as a role model, character building through football, equipment fitting, concussion avoidance, and proper skill training and tackling techniques (the steps of proper football tackling technique and other skills to avoid injuries).
