Kids & Pros To Host Coaches And Parents Clinic At Finley Stadium, UTC On Saturday

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Former Atlanta Falcon, Buddy Curry, in conjunction with Kids & Pros Inc., will host a special Coaches Breakfast and Clinic this Saturday, from 8–10 a.m. at Finley Stadium at University of Tennessee Chattanooga. 

The breakfast and clinic is open to all Chattanooga area recreation and school football coaches and parents interested in learning more about the following: the impact as a coach and role model, character building through football, organization and administration tips for youth football leagues and team parents, equipment fitting, concussion avoidance, and Heads Up tackling (the steps of proper football tackling technique and other skills to avoid injuries). 

The coaches clinics will focus on sharing information to take back and apply to prepare for the upcoming season. Coaches and parents interested in this free clinic must register on one of the links below to attend. The breakfast at the coaches clinic is compliments of Huddle House Chattanooga (special thanks to Owner Gregg Hansen). 

Mr. Curry, a USA Football Master Trainer, incorporates safe tackling techniques from USA Football’s “Heads Up Football” program into his clinics along with life skill lessons. The safe, non-contact football instruction teaches campers, parents and coaches the right way to play and how to avoid injuries, like concussions.

Coaches and parents interested in the event must RSVP via one of the following: via Kids and Pros’ Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kids-Pros-Inc/98524571792 , on the registration site - http://conta.cc/1aojcuj or via the Kids & Pros website (kidsandpros.com) by Friday, on the page under Coaches Clinics. 

Kids & Pros would like to thank the Chattanooga area contributors that made this special Coaches Clinic and Breakfast possible, including: Huddle House, Scenic City Rec League and Chattanooga YMCA for their participation in this event.
