Local high school football players and their coaches will have the chance to attend a free football camp next week in Utica, but athletic skills won’t be the only thing they’re learning.

Kristin's Fund and A Call to Men have teamed up to host “A Call to Men Football Camp” from 8:30 a.m. Monday, July 16 through 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 17, at Utica College's Gaetano Stadium.

The camp will teach approximately 200 local high school athletes and coaches skills training; character development; healthy, respectful manhood education; and prevention strategies for dating violence and sexual assault.

A Call to Men is a violence prevention organization that has more than 20 years of experience working with training men in organizations such as the NFL, NHL, MLB, NBA, the U.S. Military and more.

Kristin's Fund is a local organization created in honor of Kristin Palumbo Longo, who lost her life to domestic violence in 2009. The organization aims to spread awareness and prevention education. 

The football skills portion will be taught by Utica College Head Coach Blaise Faggiano and the Pioneer football staff, along with other guests that have yet to be determined.
