A generation after his father helped build a Bears championship team, Tom Finks is focused on teaching the next generation of football stars.
The son of Hall of Fame executive Jim Finks owns and operates Pro Sports Experience, a company that works with the Bears to conduct youth football camps throughout the Chicago area.
The week-long Chicago Bears Youth Football Camps, which are held throughout June and July, provide age appropriate skill lessons through station-based training for kids ages 6-14.
The camps feature safe, non-contact football instruction and athletic development, as well as instruction about good nutrition, proper hydration, and rest and recovery. Camps are led by professional educators with high school, college or professional coaching experience.
Former Bears also serve as instructors. They include Darnell Autry, Fabian Bownes, Macey Brooks, Ron Cox, Wendell Davis, Mark Green, Kris Haines, Al Harris, Emery Moorehead, Anthony Morgan, Jim Morrissey, Adrian Peterson, Mickey Pruitt, Jim Schwantz, Revie Sorey, Calvin Thomas, James Thornton, Keith Van Horne, Donnell Woolford and Erich Wright.
The camps are an official licensed partner with USA Football, and Heads Up Football is now a part of their curriculum. Camps will be held from June 9-July 25. Those who sign up now will receive a $30 discount. For more information, call (312) 226-7776 or visit www.BearsCamps.com.
