A great opportunity for your K-8th grade football player is coming up end of July.

Tri City Elite Football presents their Youth Development Camp,  Saturday July 28th and August 4th at Lampson Stadium in Kennewick.   TC Elite Football is sponsored by Washington Sports Network, who bring you The Blitz on Saturday mornings at 10:30 on Newstalk 870.

Jerry Mercado and his staff recently assembled the TC Elite football team for incoming freshman, and under the leadership of Coach Larry Canada,  won a round-robin tournament against several other elite teams on the West Side a few weeks ago. It's part of a growing trend around the nation, applying the concept of 'select' teams found in baseball, soccer, softball, basketball and volleyball, to football.

TC Elite provides coaching and support for these incoming high school athletes, by way of donations and sponsorships. The Youth Skills Camp is noon-3pm both dates,  and you can learn more by clicking here. Cost is $40 for each session,  just an additional $20 for siblings.  All proceeds are going back into the TC Elite football program.
