Myrissa Lindsey, Health and Physical Education Specialist at Wynbrooke Traditional Theme School in Stone Mountain, GA, had this to say about her experiences with the Atlanta Falcons Gatorade Junior Training Camps:
“With the growing emphasis on becoming a healthier society my task is to start with our youngest generation. The Atlanta Falcons Gatorade Junior Camps help to make this an easier task by giving the children an opportunity to merge the sport of football and exercise into one. I have participated in the Atlanta Falcons Gatorade Junior Camps for the last 4 years and my children look forward to it every year. Not only do they look forward to it but so do I (to see the joy and excitement on their faces is priceless). The children stay engaged the entire time and are always left begging for more.”
