-- The Nebraska Nite Hawks, based out of Omaha, NE, will offer a First Down Football Clinic for children ages 3-12 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday, October 19th at Collin Field at Omaha South High School.
This free event, part of USA Football's First Down (https://usafootball.com/
first-down/) initiative, introduces children to the fun and fitness of football by teaching the basic skills of running, jumping, passing and catching in an upbeat, dynamic environment.
First Down skills and drills are aligned with USA Football's Football Development Model (https://usafootball.com/
fdm/), a forward-thinking framework for children to learn the sport in a developmentally-
appropriate manner and fun atmosphere.
"The Nite Hawks are excited to have an opportunity to spread the love of the game to area youth," said Mrs. Pearson, Executive Director for the Nebraska Nite Hawks. "Our players are breaking barriers and enjoy having opportunities to show area youth that they "can" do anything."
