Former Winnipeg Blue Bomber Doug Brown isn’t straying far from football since retiring, he’ll be hosting his own KidSport Football Camp on Saturday.

Participants in the camp, being held at the indoor soccer complex at the University of Manitoba, are athletes who received funding from KidSport in 2011 in order to play football.

About 80 kids will take part, along with guidance from current Blue Bombers Obby Khan, Steve Morley, Kelly Butler, Chris Greaves, Glenn January, Marcellus Bowman and Mike Renaud.

The camp will not only showcase instruction and drills from a number of professional football players concerning the fundamentals of football, but a testing combine similar to that of which is employed at NFL and CFL evaluation camps.

The camp runs from 1 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.
