We at First and Goal Sports are excited to announce a Partnership with The Anti-Bully Squad and Michael Irvin to present The Playmakers Academy on June 9th 2018 at Newton High School. The camp will be for kids in Grades 2-8 and will run from 9:00 AM until 1:30 PM.
In addition to learning some football skills The Anti-Bully Squad will use this as an opportunity to spread their message “If you see somebody getting bullied, Step In and Speak out.”
Michael Irvin is a 3-Time Super Bowl Champion and NFL Hall of Fame member famous for being a “playmaker” in football. He has learned valuable life lessons on how to play the game of life without losing your direction along the way to your goals. The Playmakers Academy teaches young men how to develop strength of character and use the skills they need to win in any game – whether it be in football or in life.
The academy will follow the successful formula First and Goal Sports has been using the last seven years in New Jersey. Athletes will have an opportunity to learn one position or multiple positions if they choose. The kids will learn basic tackling, blocking and ball handling techniques at the start of the clinic. We will also teach some basic speed and agility drills organized by one of the best young trainers in the area Marc Gaudet of VETS.
There is no live tackling of other players and no equipment is needed. All form tackling will be done on practice dummies. The camp staff will consist of college coaches and current or former college players. We will teach innovative skills with one of the most important areas of focus being our safe and effective tackling system. We have used this system at the college level and it has produced great results not only in reducing concussions but also forcing more fumbles.
Lastly, in addition to Michael Irvin, other guests will join us including former NY Giants Super Bowl Champions Tank Daniels, Lee Rouson and 1st Round Draft Pick Shaun Williams. We also hope to land local stars on and off the field from the local community. Anti-Bully Squad is a non-profit organization and sponsorship opportunites are available. This will be a huge event, do not miss out!
