Little Troops on the Field: Free football clinic for children of veterans taking registrations

Local Michigan Veteran Non-profit VETLIFE brings the veteran community a new program that gives children of veterans a chance to participate in a free football clinic. VETLIFE is looking for sons or daughters of veterans between the ages of 8 and 12 who enjoy the game of football.

Join VETLIFE for Little Troops on the Field football clinic from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m Sunday, Oct. 18, 2020, at the Howell High School Football Stadium located at 1200 W. Grand River Ave. in Howell. All registered children in attendance will receive a complementary t-shirt, snack, football, and autographs by former Detroit Lions football players. Children are welcome to bring one item for former Detroit Lions football players to sign. Please note they will also be receiving a complementary football that players may also autograph.

The clinic will be three hours long, and experienced coaches from Howell High School and former Lions players will be taking children through a training with an emphasis on teaching the game and improving techniques for all skill levels and positions. Parents are welcome to attend but must remain seated in the bleachers during the clinic. An event photographer will be on site taking photos for viewing on the VETLIFE Facebook page following the event.

Limited spots are available, so only sign up if you truly intend to go. If for whatever reason you can no longer attend, let VETLIFE know so we can place another child in that spot.

MISSION: Our mission is to bring veterans together to provide a safer, healthier, and prosperous civilian lifestyle. We do this by connecting veterans and their families with local resources. We are a veteran family too and have been in your boots and know the struggles after leaving the service. We were tired of short-term solutions. We missed our camaraderie. So, we came up with a solution, VETLIFE.
