After taking a year off, the Plymouth Wildcats Football Program is THRILLED to be holding the 7th Annual Sunshine's Skills and Drills Football Clinic for Children with Special Needs on Friday, July 30, 2021.
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 for an unforgettable evening of football. Coaches from Plymouth High School’s football program will guide participants through football drills, such as passing, catching, and blocking. Each participant will have a high school football player by their side offering assistance, encouragement, and support.
After the drills, participants will run through the huge inflatable Plymouth Wildcats head, break through a paper banner, receive countless cheers and high-fives, and get their very own trophy. The football coaches and players really enjoy sharing their love of football with participants and having lots of FUN. There is no cost for participants to attend the football clinic.
The first Sunshine's Skills and Drills Football Clinic for Children with Special Needs was held in 2014 and was truly a magical and heartwarming community event. If you are not familiar with the story on how the 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.
