Last off-season I had the pleasure of attending the 1st annual Bobby Singh “Down Set Hut” Youth Football Camp. The event was held at Minoru Park in Richmond and gave kids a day of football fun and instruction from various levels of football coaches and CFL players.

The 2nd annual event goes on May 22nd, once again at Richmond’s Minoru Park. Bobby Singh will be joined by Mark Uyeyama, strength and conditioning coach of the NFL’s San Fransisco 49ers and an impressive array of BC Lions and other CFL players including:
Geroy Simon, Sherko Rasouli, Paul McCallum, Justin Sorenson, Will Loftus, Casey Printers, Anton McKenzie, Jamal Lee, Angus Reid, Tad Crawford, Brent Johnson, Barron Miles, Dante Marsh, Andrew Jones and Davis Sanchez.
The event will be hosted by Richmond Minor Football League and registration is $125.00 per child between 7-15 years of age if pre-registered. Same day registration will be $135.00. A portion of the proceeds from the camp will go to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vancouver, as well as the Zajac Ranch for Children.
From my observations last year, it’s a great day of football fun for the kids.
