This Friday marks the seventh and final session of MCC’s Fall Flag Football Camp for 8-13-year-old boys led by Sidi Zeeshan Mukhtar at Hart Middle School.

We have had 40-50 boys and coaching volunteers join us weekly. The boys have learned the basics of healthy stretching and warm-ups. We have taught the boys how to run with speed, power, and body control. They have learned the basics of catching and throwing a football and pursuit and defense. The boys have also learned the basics of a structured offense with a running and passing attack.

It has been gratifying for Coach Zeeshan to meet so many smiling and sweating faces that start their weekend with exercise, competitive sports, and fun.

We sincerely thank Ejaz Khan, Shaibaz Shariff, Coach R, Coach Y, and Coach O for volunteering to be mentors and coaches to these great kids.

We hope to unveil another sports program for the boys soon. Please stay tuned and keep the momentum going by making family time to take your kids to the park and letting them play, compete, and work on mastery of sports and athletics.
