K - 8 Football Clinic at Edison

The first Edison Tommie Football Clinic was a success. Thirty-six K - 8th grade kids attended on a hot afternoon, ready to learn some football skills and have a good time with Edison Football coaches and players. The clinic started with the players leading a stretch and agility run. The kids then got to take a water break just like the Edison players. Some of the kids were too short and Edison players had to lift them at the watering trough.

After the water break, the young athletes moved through six skill stations that focused on the various aspects of football. After the skills work, the kids played flag football games, with three different games taking place at once. The last ten minutes of the clinic concluded with hot dogs and chips for the kids, staff, and parents. Each person attending the clinic received an Edison Football T-Shirt. The clinic was a huge success, and we look forward to doubling our numbers next year.
