Former Winnipeg Blue Bomber Doug Brown and KidSport Manitoba are hosting the third annual KidSport football camp on Saturday, April 7.

The camp will be open to any athlete who received funding from KidSport to play football in 2011.

Current and former Winnipeg Blue Bomber players Obby Khan, Mike Renaud, Glenn January, Marcellus Bowman, Steve Morley, Chris Greaves and Kelly Butler will join Brown in teaching kids the technical aspects involved in football while also providing examples of other important skills such as leadership, practice, hard work, dedication and self-confidence.

“This is a great opportunity to continue to give back to the community and serve as a role model to Winnipeg’s aspiring young athletes,” Brown said in a release. “It also gives these kids the chance to learn some of the finer points of football from professional athletes, which is something that not many ever get the opportunity to do.”
