The Green Bay Packers are set to host the team's third annual "Green Bay Packers Coaching School" at Lambeau Field on Sunday, June 5, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The complimentary coaching school has a curriculum exclusively designed for youth football coaches, and can accommodate a maximum of 300 coaches. The event will feature innovative classroom sessions in the Lambeau Field Atrium, as well as on-field football instruction from top Wisconsin football coaches in the Don Hutson Center.
The one-day clinic offers coaches the opportunity to sharpen skills and learn new approaches to coaching football beyond play-calling, including methods of teaching teamwork, responsibility and discipline. Youth football coaches also will be instructed in best communication practices toward players, parents and officials, with the intent to foster positive experiences for all involved with the sport.
Youth football organizations that register five or more coaches with 100 percent attendance on the day of the event will be entered into a drawing to receive one of three $500 grants from the Green Bay Packers. A $500 Riddell equipment grant will also be awarded to an attending organization, compliments of USA Football.
The deadline to register is May 30, or when a maximum capacity of 300 coaches has been reached. Only registered coaches will be admitted to the event. Those interested may register online at www.packers.com/youthfootball under "Green Bay Packers Coaching School."
The Packers' Youth Football Coaching School is a part of Green Bay Packers Give Back, the Packers' all-encompassing community outreach initiative, which includes the Green Bay Packers Foundation, appearances made by players, alumni, coaches and staff, youth football outreach, cash and in-kind donations, Make-A-Wish visits, and community events.
