Join Connor "Sunshine" Sherman and the Plymouth Wildcats football team at the 4th Annual Sunshine's Skills and Drills Football Clinic for Children with Special Needs on Friday, July 28, 2017. Children with special needs ranging in age from 5-17 are invited to join us at the Plymouth Canton Education Park (P-CEP) Varsity Football Field from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. for a fun evening of non-contact football.
The Frankenmuth School District will be holding their 2nd Annual Sunshine’s Football Clinic for Children with Special Needs on Thursday, July 13, 2017. Children with special needs ranging in age from 5-17 are invited to join us at the Frankenmuth High School football field from 6-9 p.m. for an awesome evening of non-contact football.
Coaches from the Plymouth Wildcats football team will be guiding participants through football drills, such as passing, throwing, and catching. Each participant will have a high school player by their side offering assistance, encouragement, and support. Prior football experience is not needed, however the willingness to have fun is required.
Participants will receive a free football clinic t-shirt, a participation trophy, and plenty of other goodies. A pizza party for participants, their families, and all the volunteers will be held at the field after the clinic.
The first football clinic was held in 2014 and was truly a magical and heartwarming community event. If you are not familiar with the story on how Sunshine's Skills and Drills Football Clinic came to be, a 10-year-old football fanatic came up with the idea while working on a school project. His idea became a reality thanks to all the individuals throughout our community who assisted and supported him, including teachers, high school football coaches and players, paraprofessionals, administrators, sponsors, and many volunteers.
Of course the biggest supporters of all are the participants and their families who put their trust in us to provide a fun, safe, and rewarding evening of football and friendship. Whether your child has participated in the clinic before or is joining us for the first time, we hope to see you on July 28, 2017 in Plymouth or July 13, 2017 in Frankenmuth for another fun-filled event!
