The Baltimore Ravens are hosting a football clinic for the annual Worldwide Day of Play (WWDP), Tuesday, September 22, to complement the NFL’s celebration of the 2009 Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15).
The football clinic will be held for close to 100 Hispanic children, ages 5-11, at Patterson Park’s Utz Field.
The event will include football instruction by Antwan Barnes, Ray Rice and other Ravens’ players. Also, there will be festive music, appearances by Ravens cheerleaders and Ravens’ mascot Poe, a t-shirt and healthy snack pack for each participant.
All participants in the WWDP were preregistered by the Education Based Latino Outreach and Centro de la Comunidad. Those are two organizations focused on serving the Hispanic population in Baltimore and its surrounding areas.
The Worldwide Day of Play aligns with Play 60: The NFL Movement for and Active Generation, which is a campaign designed to get children active for at least 60 minutes a day.
