San Francisco 49ers Linebacker Holding Football Clinic at Hylton High School
– June 2, 2014 7:11 am
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks will host a USA Football FUNdamentals clinic for children ages 6-17 on Saturday, June 21, at C.D. Hylton High School in Woodbridge, Va., his alma mater. The free, one-day clinic is designed to introduce children to football by teaching basic skills in a fun and energetic environment and is supported through a grant from the NFL Foundation.
FUNdamentals incorporates a series of drills to teach passing, catching and running skills in a non-contact setting. All skills and drills selected are based on USA Football’s Player Progression Development Model, ensuring children are learning in an age-appropriate manner, based on their cognitive and physical maturity. Participants also will be introduced to the basics of USA Football’s Heads Up Tackling techniques through non-contact drills. USA Football programs are supported and endorsed by leaders in medicine, child advocacy and sport for a safer, better game.
USA Football is the official youth football development partner of the NFL and its 32 teams.
