Local boys and girls ages 6-13 are invited to take part in a Rock River Raptors Jr. football clinic Saturday, May 26. The clinic will run from 9 a.m. to noon at the Indoor Sports Center on East Riverside Drive.

The clinic is a combined effort of the YMCA of Rock River Valley, The Raptors, Rockford College and Rock Valley College.

The clinic is designed to teach boys and girls the basic skills of the game in a non-contact environment. No special equipment is needed. The clinic is expected to emphasize field skills as well as promote life skills for kids to both live and play like a champion. The instruction will come from local football coaches.

Registrations will be accepted until 9 a.m., Saturday, May 26. You can register online at www.rockfordymca.org or at the YMCA Welcome Center. You can also register before the Raptors game Friday, May 25, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the MetroCentre main lobby.

Cost for the clinic is $35 and includes a ticket to this Friday night’s (May 25) Raptors game and a T-shirt. All participants who attend the Raptors game will be highlighted at halftime.
