The Holt Brothers Football Camp teaches young players about sportsmanship and teamwork, and also provides them with tips from NFL greats, as well as local high school and college coaches.
Using a station-based training format, campers are divided by age and experience so that each receives the proper level of instruction and support.
While the football skills that are learned throughout the week are important, Terrence and Torry also mentor participants on life skills to aid in their personal development.
“You can go to any camp and learn how to catch a football,” says Torry. “We feel the value we can bring is passing along life skills, which are really the highlight of our camps.”
At the 2017 camp, held in partnership with the City of Raleigh’s Parks & Recreation Department, students played football, but also got to swim, play tennis and ride the carousel at Chavis Park. They participated in programs on leadership, financial literacy, art, digital learning, concussion and injury prevention, and health and wellness.
And for the finale, they were treated to lunch by Dave Olsen and Chef Mike Flood from PNC Arena, as well as members of the Raleigh Police Department, the Raleigh Fire Department and the Raleigh Utilities Department.
