Bears rookies joined youth football players at a Chicago Bears youth football camp session Friday at the Lincoln Park South Fields in Chicago.
The rookies assisted camp coaches in running kids through numerous drills and teaching them a variety of non-contact football skills and activities.
The rookies who attended were Jon Bostic, Michael Ford, Khaseem Greene, Demontre Hurst, Josh Lenz, P.J. Lonergan, Jordan Mills, Zach Minter, Marcus Rucker, Brent Russell, Austin Signor, Christian Tupou, Tress Way, C.J. Wilson and Marquess Wilson.
The Rookie Rally program helps the rookies learn more about their new community, connect with children and families throughout the Chicago area, serve worthwhile charitable organizations in the area, and bond as a group through volunteerism.
Chicago Bears youth football camps are the official youth camps of the Chicago Bears. Children between the ages of 6-14 learn to run, throw, catch, defend, form block, form tackle and explode out of a stance with proper technique and improved speed.
The week-long camps provide 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 supplemental instruction from former Bears players. For more information or to register, visit BearsCamps.com or call (312) 226-7776.
