NY Giants train local children in Character Camp

"NY Giants train local children in Character Camp"

The NY Giants, in partnership with the NFL, have partnered with Hall of Fame offensive tackle Anthony Muñoz to host an NFL PLAY 60 Character Camp locally for the fourth time.

Quest Diagnostics Training Center hosted approximately 300 Hispanic youth, ages 9-13, with little or no football experience from local youth organizations for the camp.

The mission of the event is to make a positive impact on youth through teaching football skills, emphasizing exercise, and reinforcing the importance of character in athletics and life. The program will work in collaboration with USA Football and its NFL FLAG curriculum which introduces participants to be physically active through non-contact, continuous action while learning the fundamentals of football, lessons in teamwork and sportsmanship.  In addition, the camps will teach character values that are core to the Anthony Muñoz Foundation, as well as promote NFL PLAY 60’s health and fitness message.  NFL PLAY 60 is the league’s youth health and fitness campaign, aimed at getting kids active for 60 minutes a day.

This was the fourth camp of the NFL PLAY60 serious as part of the NFL initiatives aimed at the Hispanic community and focused on offering young people opportunities to play and enjoy football.
