Chesapeake Redevelopment and Housing Authority among sponsors for Kids and Pros Football Camp at Oscar Smith High School

Chesapeake Redevelopment and Housing Authority (along with Towne Bank, Optima, CHKD and the National Football League) was proud to sponsor the 2019 Kids and Pros Football Camp offered at Oscar Smith High School from July 16th - 18th.  Nearly 400 students registered for the event with a turnout significantly better than expected despite the extremely high temperatures and at a times, inclement thunderstorms and downpours. Opening night included a Parent Session sponsored by CHKD Sports Medicine with information presented by a concussion specialist to educate parents, followed by an engaging group session with Buddy Curry himself.  A number of CRHA staff and Healthy Chesapeake employees volunteered their time to assist with on-site registration and camp logistics.  The camp proved to be extremely successful with the following professional athletes onsite:
  • Buddy Curry (UNC/Atlanta Falcons)
  • Bobby Butler (FL State/Atlanta Falcons)
  • Ken Oxendine (Virginia Tech/Atlanta Falcons)
  • Dion Foxx (JMU/Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers)
  • Robert Moore (Northwestern/Atlanta Falcons)

On the final day of the camp, the pro athletes and camp directors presented the participants with Camp Leadership and Sportsmanship Awards.  Buddy Curry and Justin Brooks (Executive Director of Chesapeake Redevelopment and Housing Authority) provided closing remarks and sponsor recognition for those supporting the first-time Chesapeake event.  The Chesapeake Police Department volunteers who donated their time as "Undercover Coaches" were also acknowledged.   

CRHA is already gearing up to bring the Kids and Pros Camp back to Chesapeake again next year.  Please plan to be a sponsor for this wonderful event so that even more youth have the opportunity to participate in this valuable camp.
