GREENVILLE, SC- Newly signed Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback Tajh Boyd is hosting a youth football clinic at the Kroc Center in Greenville on April 4.
The goal of the camp is to have the kids enjoy their time with Boyd and the other coaches as well as learn the fundamentals of how to play each position of football safely. It is a no-contact approach that is intended to teach the game at a high level to all ages. The camp is open for ages 6-18 and will feature six stations that each teaches a different position group. On a rotational basis, all campers will have an opportunity to learn from and catch passes from Tajh Boyd.
Packages start at $85 a camper, which includes personal instruction from Tajh Boyd and an experienced coaching staff, a free Adidas camp T-shirt, and a photo opportunity with Tajh Boyd which each camper can access through www.crushrushphotography.com for free after the camp is completed.
There are also packages that include the above plus Tajh Boyd signed memorabilia such as photographs or footballs for $125 and $150 respectively. Proceeds from the camp are to benefit non-profit organizations, The Tajh Boyd Foundation and the South Carolina Football Hall of Fame Business Connect and Youth Football Scholarship Programs.
The camp will be held on April 4 at 1 p.m. at the Kroc Center in Greenville.
