The Plymouth Wildcats Football Program were thrilled to hold the 5th Annual Sunshine's Skills and Drills Football Clinic for Children with Special Needs on July 27, 2018.
Children with special needs ranging in age from 5-17 were invited to join us at the Plymouth Canton Education Park (P-CEP) Varsity football field for an unforgettable evening of football. Coaches from Plymouth High School’s football program guided participants through football drills, such as passing, catching and blocking. Each participant had a high school player by their side offering assistance, encouragement, and support.
After the drills, participants ran through the huge inflatable Plymouth Wildcats head, broke through a paper banner, received countless cheers and high-fives, and received their very own trophy. The football players really enjoyed sharing their love of football with the participants and having lots of FUN.
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.
