“We’re thrilled to partner with the Myrtle Beach Bowl, ESPN Events and the City of Myrtle Beach for the first year to host this free football clinic for our local youth. It’s sure to be a fun and rewarding experience for all participants,” said Jonathan Paris, executive director of sports tourism for the Myrtle Beach Area CVB.
“We would like to thank the Myrtle Beach Chamber and CVB, the City of Myrtle Beach and Horry County for their help making this event possible,” said Rachel Quigley, executive director for the Myrtle Beach Bowl.
The half-day program will run from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and includes water, Gatorade, lunch, a snack and a t-shirt for each participant. Athletic attire is required but all gear will be provided. Tents will be set up to offer shade for participants. The rain date is set for June 29.
