First Down Clinics Being Offered in Harrisburg

22 May, 2019

In partnership with USA Football, the Pennsylvania Scholastic Football Coaches Association (PSFCA) announced today it will host free First Down Clinics on Monday, May 27 at Landis Field Central Dauphin Middle School in Harrisburg, Pa. prior to the kickoff of the 62nd PSFCA Big 33 Football Classic. The three 40-minute clinics are at 9:30 a.m., 10:15 a.m. and 11 a.m. ET. Check-in will start 30 minutes prior to each clinic.

Sponsored by ESPN, these events, part of USA Football’s First Down initiative, introduce children ages 8-18 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, a forward-thinking framework for children to learn the sport in a developmentally-appropriate manner and fun atmosphere. Each participant also will receive a free t-shirt.

Participants can register here. [Note: To register, participants need a USA Football account, which can be created at no cost at this link.]

Clinic participants and their families are encouraged to stay on-site and enjoy the 62nd PSFCA Big 33 Football Classic. Featuring the Fan Experience from 10:30am to 1:00pm and top high school football players in Pennsylvania, the Big 33 Classic kicks off at 2 p.m. ET at Landis Field. This year marks the sixth game in the series between Pennsylvania and Maryland. Tickets can be purchased here.
