Miami area children aged 5 through 15 can “get ready for football season,” thanks to Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s tackle football and cheerleading programs. Registration for the fall 2015 season (August – December) is now taking place and will remain open until all teams are filled.
The sports programs at Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade are designed to provide a safe and healthy environment so that children can learn team skills, increase self-esteem, build character, become positive role models, and increase motivation as well as specific skills related to the sport. With training provided by volunteer coaches, sport programs are available during the afternoon to the early hours of the night, and are offered Monday through Friday. This is the time of day when children, especially teens, are more likely to engage in harmful activities.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s Gwen Cherry, Northwest, and Kendall Clubs are now holding registration for the tackle football and cheerleading season starting in August. Register Monday–Friday from 2–7 p.m. at each Club.
