STOUGHTON (WKOW) — Students in Stoughton had the chance to play like a Packer on Tuesday.
The Green Bay Packers hosted a Youth Football Outreach Camp at Kegonsa Elementary School. Around 300 kids had the chance to participate in the fun.
The Green Bay Packers Youth Football Outreach Camp program, coordinated in conjunction with the NFL Play 60 program, provides boys and girls the opportunity to test their football skills in drills and obstacle courses. Kids rotate through five drill stations: a relay race, kicking a ball, throwing a pass, leaping for a catch and diving for a touchdown.
The NFL PLAY 60 campaign is designed to tackle childhood obesity by getting kids active through in-school, after-school and team-based programs.
“We want our kids to learn how to be healthy,” said Kegonsa Elementary’s physical education teacher Melinda Dozois. “We want them to be active for 60 minutes a day and show great sportsmanship while doing it.”
Packers football outreach specialist Ryan Fencl assisted with the camp, along with Packers alumnus and player/alumni specialist Tony Fisher.
