Last week we had our quarterly Denver Broncos Youth Football Task Force meeting. Comprised of youth football league representatives from around the metro Denver area gather with the Broncos’ community development and marketing departments to discuss current youth football issues and initiatives. It was immediately clear from our meeting’s agenda that we have a busy summer of youth football upon us.
We just wrapped up the NFL High School Player Development Camp at Legacy High School where WR Domenik Hixon and WR Brian Clark stopped by to lend their expertise. A luck group of 12 youngsters (representing Montbello, Lincoln and Legacy High Schools) from this camp were selected to travel to the NFL-sponsored 7-on-7 football tournament in Houston, Texas in early July. Good luck to our Broncos team!!
In addition, we have a NFL Junior Player Development Camp this week at Hinkley High School in Aurora (WR Brandon Marshall and S Hamza Abdullah are planning on visiting) and two the following week at both East and Lincoln High Schools in Denver. We wrap up our NFL JPD camps in July with a camp in Broomfield.
Then for the coaches, USA Football is hosting a youth football Coaching Clinic here at INVESCO Field at Mile High on June 23rd.
On August 11th, we are hosting our 4th annual Broncos Bowl also at the stadium. Broncos Bowl is our celebration of youth football were we invite youth teams from across the state to scrimmage one another amidst a complete game-day atmosphere at INVESCO Field at Mile High.
Everything wraps up with our Youth Football Salute during halftime of the Broncos preseason game against Cleveland on August 25th.
Whew! What a summer of football we have underway and it is only June! Following our meeting, we all scrambled to attend to our delegated tasks and look forward to seeing football fields across the state begin to fill up with kids learning sportsmanship, teamwork and the game of football. Much thanks to all of the members of our task force for their time and support to ensure anyone and everyone has the opportunity to learn and play football.
A reminder that all of the Broncos youth football information and much more is posted on denverbroncos.com/youthfootball.
