A chance to learn from former players

LAKE FOREST, IL - The <!--Default NodeId For Chicago is 115,2005--><A HREF=http://bears.theinsiders.com>Chicago</A> Bears are scheduled to launch a series of non-contact youth football camps for children ages 6 to 15 years old. College and high school football coaches will lead the Chicago Bears Youth Football Camps, while several former Bears players are scheduled to provide supporting instruction.

Among those who lead instruction are Wendell Davis (WR, 1988-1993), Jim Morrissey (LB, 1985-1993), Glen Kozlowski (WR, 1987-1992), Thomas Sanders (RB, 1985-1989), Bobby Douglass (QB, 1969-1975) and Allan Ellis (CB, 1973-1977, 1979-1980).

Experts in fitness, nutrition and strength development will also participate in the camps to provide a well-rounded athletic experience. Prices range from $90-$225 depending on camp and skill level.

Three different skill levels of camps are offered, so beginners, intermediate and experienced players receive appropriate instruction. Participants have a choice of attending a weekly skills development camp in the spring, a five-day camp in the summer or both.

The camps are a component of the Club's youth football initiative to encourage more kids to participate and learn the skills of America's No. 1 fan sport. Other programs that are offered include: Punt, Pass and Kick, NFL Flag, Bears Flag Football, NFL Junior Player Development and youth clinics. The Bears also support youth football programs administered by the Chicago Park District.

The Chicago Bears Youth Football Camps are operated by Pro Sports Experience, LLC, which is owned and managed by Tom Finks. Finks is the son of former Bears General Manager and NFL Hall of Famer, the late Jim Finks.
