SoVaNow.com / July 18, 2018


The Park View varsity football program will host a Youth Football Camp on Saturday from 9 a.m.-noon at the school. Gates open at 8 a.m. and cost for the camp is $15.

Varsity football coach Tony Whittingham said the purpose of the camp is to teach techniques and fundamentals of the game of football.

The camp will provide instruction on the proper techniques of blocking and tackling, along with offensive and defensive skills pertinent to youth football.

Instilling a positive winning attitude and team concept will be another focus of the camp.

Whittingham noted the mini-camp is a great opportunity to help kids learn, expand and nurture their skill sets.

“We will be doing 40-times, grass drills that involve speed training, basic skills needed for any young football athlete looking to grow and develop in the game,” Whittingham said.

Organizers of the event welcome any Bluestone Middle School or Mecklenburg County YMCA football player or prospective player to also attend the camp.
