The NFL has partnered with Hall of Fameoffensive tackle Anthony Muñoz and the Muñoz Agency for the second year to host NFL PLAY 60 Character Camps this summer as part of the NFL's year-round Hispanic outreach initiative, focused on offering youth opportunities to play and experience the game of football. 

The two-day, non-contact football camps will be hosted in 12 NFL markets – Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Miami, Oakland, Pittsburgh, San Diego, San Francisco, Tampa Bay and Tennessee – with support from the local NFL team. Each site will welcome approximately 300 predominantly-Hispanic boys and girls ages 9-13 with little or no football experience from local youth organizations. 

The mission of the camps is 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 will work in collaboration with USA Football and its FUNdamentals curriculum, which introduces children to football by teaching basic skills in a non-contact setting.  USA Football is the official youth football development partner of the NFL and its 32 teams.

In addition, the camps will teach character values that are core to the Anthony Muñoz Foundation, as well as promote 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. 

Each camp participant will receive a football with a bilingual hang-tag that offers youth an opportunity to view videos in Spanish and English that teach the basics of football on the NFL's youth website, NFLRUSH.com.  The NFL has donated more than 30,000 footballs to youth as part of its Hispanic outreach initiative. 

NFL PLAY 60 Character Camps will also be held in Denver in September in conjunction with the NFL's celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, as well as in New York/New Jersey during Super Bowl week.
