MIAMI DOLPHINS AND ANTHONY MUNOZ FOUNDATION PRESENT
NFL PLAY 60 CHARACTER CAMP
The Miami Dolphins, in partnership with the NFL, have partnered with Hall of Fame offensive tackle Anthony Muñoz to host an NFL PLAY 60 Character Camp for kids locally for the fourth time. This weekend, Ted Hendricks Stadium in Hialeah, FL received approximately 300 youth, majorly Hispanics ages 9-13, with little or no football experience for the free camp.
The mission of the event was to make a positive impact on youth through teaching football skills, emphasizing exercise, and reinforcing the importance of character in athletics and life. The program is currently working in collaboration with USA Football and its NFL FLAG curriculum, which introduces participants to be physically active through non-contact, continuous action while learning the fundamentals of football, lessons in teamwork and sportsmanship. In addition, the camps taught character values that are core to the Anthony Muñoz Foundation, and promoted NFL PLAY 60’s health and fitness message. NFL PLAY 60 is the league’s youth health and fitness campaign, aimed at getting kids active for 60 minutes a day.
This is part of a series of NFL PLAY60 camps taking place this summer and fall as part of the NFL’s year-round Hispanic outreach initiative, focused on offering youth opportunities to play and experience the game of football.
