Training Camp: The Kids Experience

Asburn,VA – Training camp is one of the best chances for fans to get close to the athletes they support.

Casey Rabach meet some young fans.

Fans of all ages attend the hot and muggy practices in hopes to catch a glimpse or an autograph of their favorite player.  Many of those in attendance are children.

“I just hope my kids get some autographs, and have a good time,” says Ron Petit, or Claire, PA.

The Redskins have put together a package to that lets the kids get closer to the Redskins than ever before.  For a nominal price kids can be signed up to the “Redskins Kids Club.”  This is a membership package that give kids a membership card, t-shirts, and other goodies.  Most important of all, it brings them closer to the action during practice.  Kids can get a good look at their favorite players and get player autographs up close and personal.  Each child may be accompanied by one adult.

For the kids that are not signed up, they can participate in the different activities designed to give the kids something fun to do.  The staff at Redskins Park set up a tire course for kids to run through and a climbing wall to test their athletic skills.

Bring your child to training camp may not be as unbearable as it once was, now that they have something to do.  Having the opportunity to get them close to their favorite players is a plus too.
