Mexico, and in particular Baja Sur, is a special place that presents an opportunity for community contribution and a genuine connection with local residents.
La Paz, Baja Caliofornia Sur (PRWEB) June 13, 2008
Bahia de los Sueños, an exclusive seaside residential retreat on the shores of the Sea of Cortez, recently partnered with NFL star and founding resident Kyle Turley to host the second annual NFL Clinica Internacional de Futbol Americano. The program -- held on Saturday, May 24, at the Estadio Guaycura Football Stadium -- was developed to teach the fundamentals of American Futbol (football) to local children.
Children ages six to 13 were invited to hone their skills and receive playing tips from current and former NFL players. Drills included throwing, blocking, passing, running, kicking, receiving, and conditioning. Participating NFL players included Turley and John Carney of the Kansas City Chiefs, Mike Malano of the Minnesota Vikings, Luis Castillo of the San Diego Chargers, and former players Joe Kapp and Dwight Chornomud.
Turley -- one of the community's premiere residents -- and Bahia de los Sueños continue to display an active commitment to supporting the local community and advancing the sport of football in Mexico. In addition to Clinica Internacional de Futbol Americano, Bahia de los Sueños and the NFL will also donate football uniforms and equipment to local football clubs.
"Athletes and celebrities are gifted with an ability to become involved with programs, organizations and destinations that offer grand solutions for a variety of social issues," said Turley, who played offensive tackle in the NFL from 1998 to 2007. "Mexico, and in particular Baja Sur, is a special place that presents an opportunity for community contribution and a genuine connection with local residents."
