Young football players running a drill.

Camp takes place on Saturday, June 15

The annual Tommy Bohanon Foundation Youth Football Camp is set to kick off on Saturday, June 15 at North Fort Myers High School.

Registration is free and opens May 15 for the yearly one-day event for student-athletes in first through eighth grades in Southwest Florida.

Participants will expand their love and knowledge of football with the help of experienced football coaches. The team of coaches provide hands-on training by guiding youth through NFL-style drills that lay a solid foundation for good sportsmanship.

The camp runs from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the high school stadium. Athletes should wear shorts and a T-shirt and bring socks and football cleats (sneakers are acceptable if the athlete does not have cleats). Athletes should also bring a refillable water bottle. Lunch will be provided by Tropical Smoothie Café and the Lee County Sheriff’s Office will have sweet treats for all participants at the end of the camp.

“This is one of our biggest events of the year,” said Foundation President Tommy Bohanon. “It’s always great to see the young kids out on the field laughing and having a good time while both learning the game and acquiring some valuable life lessons.”
