Sunshine Skills and Drills Football Clinic
Posted By: Melanie Gray (June 29, 2016)
Connor Sherman - 7th grade student at Pioneer Middle School created a football clinic for special needs kids when he was in my fourth grade class 3 years ago. I asked my students to do something they were passionate about. Loving sports, Connor immediately knew his passion project had to somehow involve football or baseball. After brainstorming a few different project ideas, he came up with the idea of holding a football clinic for kids with special needs. This was an ambitious project, but Connor was determined to make it a reality.
Last year there were close to 60 participants. It was amazing to see! The clinic is offered at no cost to participants. Connor's clinic relies on donations from the community. This $1000 would be put to very good use! http://www.sunshinesfootballclinic.org/
