The Pittsburgh Steelers will host a Gatorade Junior Training Camp on Friday, August 1 before the Steelers' night practice at Latrobe Memorial Stadium.
The camp is free to all children in grades 1-8. They will participate in non-contact drills and pep talks showing them that there is much more to playing football than just having the right moves.
The program emphasizes friendly competition over winning and teaches important values that can be learned from playing sports including responsibility, teamwork and sportsmanship. The camp also highlights basic health and fitness training for active youth and the importance of the proper nutrition while playing sports.
The session can hold up to 200 children, and will run from 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Children must register as it is on a first-come, first-serve registration.
