Orange Bowl Youth Football and Miami Dolphins Teaming up for the Youth

MIAMI – Two of South Florida’s most storied sports organizations are teaming up once more this summer. The Orange Bowl Committee and the Miami Dolphins will come together for the second consecutive year to host a free Youth Football and Cheerleading Skills Clinic series across South Florida.

The widely popular Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance (OBYFA) Skills Clinic is back this summer with a total of three one-day clinics held from West Palm Beach to the Florida Keys.

Each clinic, which is also sponsored by the Nat Moore Foundation and Publix, features football drills, cheerleading techniques and injury care and prevention sessions designed to teach young athletes teamwork, self confidence and social skills.

Participants will receive a camp T-shirt, a goody bag and a meal. Miami Dolphins Alumni and Dolphins Cheerleaders also will be featured and will serve as instructors for various camp activities.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Miami Dolphins’ alumni to teach football skills and fundamentals not only to the kids in the leagues, but to the coaches as well,” said Twan Russell, camp director and current Miami Dolphin Director of Youth & Community Programs.

“The Orange Bowl Youth Football Alliance Skills Clinic is the perfect union between the Miami Dolphins and OBYFA as we share the same goal – to promote healthy and safe football and cheerleading practices.”

All campers will be challenged and taught the latest skills by the professional players and youth coaches, with strong emphasis placed on position techniques.

Participating coaches and instructors all have significant experience, a strong background in leadership of children and youth and are committed to a safe, fun-filled camp experience.

“Following the success of last year’s clinics, we realize just how much this unique experience benefits the youth in our community,” added Nat Moore, a former Miami Dolphins wide receiver and an Orange Bowl Committee member. “The Skills Clinic will continue to provide some of South Florida’s finest young football players and cheerleaders an avenue in which to learn from some of the best in the business.”
