Join us Saturday, June 8th at Toombs County High School for The Nick Eason Foundation Youth Football Skills Camp. Nick Eason, Lyons, GA native and 10-year NFL veteran, currently a defensive tackle with the Arizona Cardinals, is hosting a FREE youth football skills camp for 300 youth (grades K-12) on Saturday, June 8th at Toombs County High School. Joining Nick will be several of his NFL teammates, all donating their time to teach Georgia's youth the game they love, FOOTBALL! Camp will be broken up into two sessions, a morning session and an afternoon session based on grade entering fall of 2013. Check-in for the morning session (grades K-6th) will begin at 8am, camp will start at 9am, and camp will conclude at 12pm with lunch served after. Check-in for the afternoon session (grades 7th-12th) will begin at 12:30pm, camp will start at 1pm, and camp will conclude at 4pm with lunch served after. Registration is from April 1st - May 17th and will be open to the first 300 pre-registered campers. Each pre-registered camper will receive a complimentary camp t-shirt, lunch, an autographed souvenir. Donations are also being accepted for The Nick Eason Foundation which was founded to assist families with a loved one going through a terminal illness. The Foundation helps families financially as well as spiritually and emotionally to try and relieve some of the immense pressure that comes with managing such a critical family time. Nick knows all too well about this as his mother lost her battle with cancer in August 2012. We are here to provide advice, personal support, and financial assistance, and are funded by private donations, corporate partnerships, and public fund-raising efforts.
