The Pittsburgh Steelers will host the Gatorade Junior Training Camp on Friday, August 6, prior to the team's night practice at Latrobe Memorial Stadium. The camp will run from 3-5 p.m. at the Latrobe Parks and Recreation Field, which is adjacent to Memorial Stadium
The camp is free to all children between the ages of 7-14. 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. Admission for the participant and one parent to the night practice is also included in registration for the Camp.
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 250 children. Children must register as it is on a first-come, first-serve registration, as it is expected to fill-up quickly.
