On Saturday, June 12, over 600 members of the Junior Power Pack Kids Club attended the Junior Power Pack experience at the Don Hutson Center. The inclement weather outside forced the clinic inside at the Packers indoor practice facility. This provided the kids a chance to play in one of the most modern practice facilities in all of professional sports.
The afternoon camp was an exclusive event for Junior Power Pack members. Parents were seated with cameras in hand along the sidelines. Members spent the afternoon running routes, hitting the tackling dummy, doing various agility drills and lining up in the 3-point stance.
Six Packers players, including Paris Lenon, James Lee and Grey Ruegamer, were on hand to guide participants though the different drills. The players provided full speed demonstrations and then instructed the children on the proper techniques for each drill and position.
After almost two hours of fun and drills, the kids and their parents were invited to listen to celebrity speaker Grey Ruegamer. The big center told the kids to have goals and to not let anything keep you from going after them. Grey's point to the captive audience was to "stick to your dreams" and always use education as a tool to help you achieve them.
All participating members in the clinic received a t-shirt and an autographed participation poster.
Originating in 1998, the Junior Power Pack Experience has quickly become the club event these members look forward to each year. Other Packers who have participated in past years include Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, Torrance Marshall and Donald Driver.
