The USFL is hosting two free youth football camps on June 4 at Miles College.
The first clinic will be from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the second will follow shortly after from 2 to 4 p.m.
“The skills clinics will focus on developing youth ages 5-13. The clinic will consist of two hours of instruction with players and coaches of the USFL. Students will learn from experienced coaching staff and players to teach individual and team drills on both offense and defense. Players and coaches will train and prepare students to be a better, more confident football player!”
Lunch will also be provided to participants.
Miles College President Bobbie Knight said the community is excited to host the USFL on campus.
“This opportunity will allow youth near our campus to learn necessary skills from professionals to lead in every facet of life, on and off the field,” Knight said.
The USFL said it is committed to “integrating into the fabric of Birmingham’s magic and providing a platform to elevate the next generation of leaders.”
“We are committed to providing opportunities for young people to understand the fundamentals necessary to excel in football and their communities,” Darryl Johnston, executive vice president of football operations, said. “It’s always a lot of fun to work with the kids because they are always eager to learn and enhance their skills.”
Though the camps are free, registration is required and must be completed by noon June 3. Those forms can be found here.
