Patriots Alumni Conduct Youth Clinic at Boston English High School

Foxborough, Mass. - The New England Patriots Alumni Club (NEPAC), the Patriots Charitable Foundation and the Boston Centers for Youth and Families are teaming up to give over 100 pre-registered sixth through eighth graders some hands-on football training. The clinic will be held Saturday, June 24, 2006 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. at Boston English High School in Jamaica Plain.

"Football For You" is an initiative presented by the NEPAC to the City of Boston and the Patriots Charitable Foundation to help teach kids more about football from Patriots alumni who excelled at the game. Russ Francis, Pete Brock, Garin Veris and Troy Barnett are among the dozen past Patriot greats who will serve as instructors during the clinic. Registration was held through the Boston Public Schools and is now closed.

"The charter of the New England Patriots Alumni Club is to give back to youth football," explained NEPAC President Pete Brock. "Together with the City of Boston and the Patriots Charitable Foundation, we developed this one-day event to give the kids who signed up a quality football experience. We hope in the future that we can expand, not only to a multi-day clinic for kids, but also beyond Boston to other New England areas."

After learning football from the pros, clinic attendees will be able to participate in a punt, pass and kick competition and then hear some words of encouragement from a special Patriots guest. The whole day will wrap up with a BBQ for all the attendees and their parents.
