OPPORTUNITY FOR YOUTH COACHES TO HONE SKILLS
The Green Bay Packers and USA Football will host a coaching school at the team's facility April 12. The curriculum is designed exclusively for coaches of youth football teams (middle school and Pop Warner levels) and offers the opportunity for sharpening skills and learning new approaches to teaching football.
The day-long coaching school will feature classroom sessions in the Legends Club of the Lambeau Field Atrium and football drills in the Don Hutson Center. The event is priced at $35 and is open to 250 coaches, with registration currently underway. Slots are available on a first-come, first-served basis, with online registration available at www.usafootball.com.
On April 12, registration opens at 7:30 a.m., and the program runs from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The day will offer innovative classroom and on-the-field football instruction from top local high school coaches. Beyond the Xs and Os, attendees learn teaching techniques to ensure that their youngsters have fun playing a game they love while developing their character through football's intrinsic values of teamwork, responsibility and discipline. Youth coaches are taught best communication practices toward players, parents, and officials, fostering positive experiences for all involved with the sport.
Packers offensive line coach James Campen will deliver a keynote speech at the event, which also includes a gift bag and lunch.
