John Carrigan Rotary South All-Star Classic ~ Miami Dolphins youth football clinic
As part of their support of the John Carrigan Rotary South All-Star Classic events, the Miami Dolphins will present a football clinic to area youth, ages 6-14, Tuesday, Dec. 4 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Fort Myers High School. There is no charge to participate in the clinic. The Dolphins’ grassroots program emphasizes education, physical fitness and positive choices for youth in a safe and fun environment, encouraging the participants to become “DolFit” kids. Boys and girls are able to participate in both offensive and defensive drills featuring hurdles, knock-away dummies, ladder and halfback pads, identical to Dolphins’ players. Children may also choose to participate in a non-contact football obstacle course. Every participant attending the clinic will receive a complimentary ticket to the John Carrigan Rotary South All-Star Classic football game which will take place Wednesday, Dec. 5 at 7:30 p.m. at Fort Myers High School. The game matches top Lee County high school senior football players in a north vs. south competition. Dolphins’ alumni will attend the game, serving as honorary coaches, as well as providing stadium enhancements for the match-up. To secure a child’s spot in the clinic, a parent or guardian must submit an online waiver at http://rotarysouthallstarclassic.org.
