Dolphins host free youth football clinic

By Staff | Nov 30, 2012

As part of their support of the John Carrigan Rotary South All-Star Classic events, the Miami Dolphins are offering a free football clinic to area youth, ages 6-14, 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 4, at Fort Myers High School.

The Dolphins’ grassroots program emphasizes education, physical fitness and positive choices for youth in a safe and fun environment, encouraging the participants to become “DolFit” kids.

Boys and girls can participate in both offensive and defensive drills featuring hurdles, knock-away dummies, ladder and halfback pads, identical to Dolphins’ players. Children may also choose to participate in a non-contact football obstacle course.

Every participant attending the clinic receives a complimentary ticket to the John Carrigan Rotary South All-Star Classic football game to kick off at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5 at Fort Myers High.

To secure a child’s spot in the clinic, a parent or guardian must submit an online waiver at rotarysouthallstarclassic.org.
