“If your child is planning on being involved in football or spirit activities in the future, including cheer, dance or color guard, this clinic is an affordable way for your youngster to learn the basics “, said Bonnie Peggs, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Angel Medical Center.  “All children K-6th grade are invited to come and being a part of the clinic.  We will also be having classes and workshops on how to prepare your child for an athletic program.”

The classes will include information on concussions, stretching for young people and other possible risks of participating in sports and spirit activities.

“We feel it is important for parents to understand the inherent risks involved by the very nature of their child’s participation in these activities.  We hope they will attend and obtain helpful information concerning their child’s safety and well-being,” Peggs concluded.
