Raiders set to kick off Play 60 camp

The Raiders wrapped up their OTA's Wednesday but even while they're not practicing, the duties of the NFL player continue. In this case, those duties are such that of changing the lives of young people in the NFL Play 60 Character Camp. And that's a duty they are more than happy to perform.

The camp will take place this weekend at Raiders headquarters in Alameda. Those Raider players in attendance will include QB Matt Flynn, DE David Bass, G Tony Bergstrom, LB Billy Boyko, LB Kaelin Burnett, CB Chance Casey, G Jason Foster, LB Eric Harper, S Shelton Johnson, LB Sio Moore, FB Jamize Olawale, WR Rod Streater, CB Mitchell White, DT Vance Walker. Also in attendance will be Raider Legend Sam Williams and the Raiderettes.

The Raiders are the first of 12 NFL teams to host the two-day, non-contact football camp. Participating in camp will be over 300 youngsters from the Oakland Parks and Recreation Department, the YMCA of Oakland, Oakland Boys & Girls Club, Alameda Boys & Girls Club, East Oakland Youth Development Center and Playworks.

The mission of the camps is to make a positive impact on youth through teaching football skills, emphasizing exercise, and reinforcing the importance of character in athletics and life. The program will work in collaboration with USA Football and its FUNdamentals curriculum, which introduces children to football by teaching basic skills in a non-contact setting. USA Football is the official youth football development partner of the NFL and its 32 teams.

The NFL, USA Football and Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz and the Muñoz Agency have partnered to host NFL PLAY 60 Character Camps this summer for the second year as part of the NFL's year-round Hispanic outreach initiative, focused on offering youth opportunities to play and experience the game of football. NFL PLAY 60 is the league's youth health and fitness campaign, aimed at getting kids active for 60 minutes a day.

Each camp participant will receive a football with a bilingual hang-tag that offers youth an opportunity to view videos in Spanish and English that teach the basics of football on the NFL's youth website, NFLRUSH.com. The NFL has donated more than 30,000 footballs to youth as part of its Hispanic outreach initiative. The other markets are Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Miami, Pittsburgh, San Diego, San Francisco, Tampa Bay and Tennessee.
