Former New England Patriots are coming back to New Bedford to teach children some lessons both on and off of the field.

The New England Patriots Alumni Club (NEPAC), and the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation will host its annual ‘Football For YOU’ youth football clinic on May 30th at Andrea McCoy Field, 78 Hathaway Blvd. New Bedford.

The clinic is offered free of charge to children between the ages of 9 and 14. New England Patriots Alumni will serve as instructors during the skills sessions, along with local High School coaching staff.

“This event has given us, both Patriots Alumni and the Patriots Foundation, an opportunity to reach out and show kids who might not really understand the values of team sports how it helps in the development of life skills,” said former Center and President of Patriots Alumni, Pete Brock. “The campers have learned teamwork, camaraderie and discipline while just having fun. And for all of the alumni players involved, it has been fun for us as we get to share our experiences with the kids.”

The program also gives back to the local community as in a previous year the Fall River Falcons received $1,000 from Patriots Alumni at the event.

The “Football For YOU” program, was created by Patriots Alumni in partnership with the City of Boston and the Patriots Charitable Foundation to bring the fundamentals of football to children in the metro Boston area.
