INDIANAPOLIS - The Indianapolis Colts Youth Football department will be teaming up with Colts safety Antoine Bethea to run the annual Colts Skills Camp Saturday, June 1, at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center (7001 W. 56th Street, Indianapolis, Ind.).
The 2013 Colts Skills Camp will be the eighth consecutive Skills Camp the Colts Youth Football program has conducted and the second camp that Bethea has been involved with. The camp is for youth in third through eighth grade and is being provided free of charge. It offers an opportunity for kids to learn the game of football from Bethea and receive guidance from twenty five high school and college coaches.
"I'm excited to host this youth camp here in Indianapolis," Bethea said. "There are so many young fans in the stands on gamedays with my jersey on, showing their support, so being a part of this free camp gives me a chance to give back to them."
There are two separate camps Saturday with the first one being for kids in third through fifth grade starting at 9:00 a.m., and the second camp for kids in sixth through eighth grade starting at 12:00 p.m. The camps will help youth work on football fundamentals and also teach them important life skills. Registration is closed for both camps as they are at capacity. On-site registration is not available.
"We are ecstatic to team up with Antoine Bethea this weekend for our Colts Skills Camp," Youth Football Commissioner Mike Prior said. "It is exciting to know that Antoine will help the kids learn the fundamentals of football, but more importantly help young campers with character development."
