Kids and Pros Camp Draws 300 to Pooler

(Pooler) – Former Atlanta Falcons Buddy Curry (1980-85) and Bobby Butler (1982-92) led a group of retired professional football players to the Pooler Recreation Center to hold the Kids and Pros Camp.  300 of our area’s youth showed up for the FREE camp to learn the fundamentals of the game.

Curry also led a teaching clinic for the adults.  The focus was proper tackling and use of the helmet.  Concerns of concussions in football have swept the country and this camp is designed to make sure our area’s youth know the fundamentals of tackling in avoidance of injury.

Memorial Health and Chatham Orthopaedic Associates were the major sponsors for this event.

The camp continues to run Thursday and Friday evenings from 6pm until 9pm at the Pooler Rec.
