The Kansas City Chiefs and Missouri Western State University will again host the Gatorade Junior Training Camp on Saturday, Aug. 3 from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at Spratt Stadium on the campus of Missouri Western in St. Joseph, Mo., during 2013 Chiefs Training Camp presented by Mosaic Life Care.
The event – limited to 250 participants filled on a first come, first served basis – is designed for boys and girls in grades three through eight as part of American Family Fun Day. Gatorade Junior Training Camp allows children an opportunity to learn and practice football skills through multiple drills and teach them about the importance of hydration.
Youth will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of football drills under the guidance of players and coaches from the Missouri Western State University Griffons football team. Multiple Gatorade hydration stations will also be available for camp participants to utilize as well. To participate, a waiver must be completed on-site for every participant by either a parent or guardian.
The first 100 camp participants will receive two complimentary tickets to the Friday, Aug. 16 preseason game when the Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers in a 7 p.m. contest at Arrowhead Stadium. In addition, Chiefs Cheerleaders and KC Wolf will make appearances during the youth camp.
Prior to the start of the Gatorade Junior Training Camp, participants and their families will be able to watch the Chiefs take the practice field for a training camp practice at 8:15 a.m.
