The sunny day was filled with fun and smiling faces. The kids even got to go home with snack packs courtesy of MATTER. We love partnering with the Minneapolis school district and helping more kids in the game. We hope to be back again next year!
Stephen’s favorite (as well as the kids’) was the Touchdown Celebration drill, where kids were able to catch a pass and then have a dance party in the endzone with Stephen. Displaying high energy, not being afraid to try new things and having fun were common themes throughout the day.
Next, the kids took a break and were led through a goal-setting and healthy-eating session by the InSports staff and Weatherly, where they shared their personal goals for leading a healthier life.
Soon, it was back to the activities as the kids were able to play full field “capture the football” games where they were able to work on teamwork and communication. Stephen, as well as some of the volunteers, also joined in on the fun.
The day wrapped up with a quick Q&A between Stephen and the kids, and with the presentation of the camp’s trophies, including the MVP and Best Teammate awards. Every camper also went home with a signed mini football from Stephen.
We were thrilled to partner with Weatherly as his passion, energy and dedication to the game is contagious! An amazing opportunity to kelp kids get in the game!
