Multiple district students in grades 4-9 recently attended the 17th annual Thunderbird Football Clinic. With assistance from Connetquot High School football coach Mike Hansen and varsity defensive coordinator Mike Konsevitch, the five-day clinic was held in an effort to enhance students’ football skills and help them meet some new friends along the way.

The program, which is non-contact, assisted the students in developing power, speed and agility while emphasizing teamwork and sportsmanship. Along the way, players were introduced to the skills required to play all offensive and defensive positions. Each session ended with fun games that left them looking forward to the upcoming football season.

“The weather was perfect, and it was great to see the next generation of Connetquot T-Birds having fun while working on the skills and techniques that will continue our program’s success for years to come,” said Coach Hansen.

At the conclusion of the week, each student received an official Connetquot Thunderbird football jersey and shorts.
