The Detroit Lions football team has held youth football camps for nine years, and more than 10,000 kids around the state of Michigan have participated in the program. This year the Lions are making history by stepping over the line, and bringing their Lions Youth Camp to Ohio for the first time ever.

The Sylvania Northview High School Football program has worked with the Detroit Lions football program to bring the official Detroit Lions Summer Youth Football Camp to Sylvania, July 22 through July 25 2013.
 
"I'm very supportive of it," Northview athletic director Chris Irwin said of the NV Lions Football Camp this summer. "It's just another positive thing that Coach M. has brought to the football program. He's bringing the Detroit Lions here, and the kids in the community are benefiting."
 
The camp is for children ages 6 to 14 and is limited to 70 participants. It will be held from July 22 to 25 from 8:30 a.m. to noon at Northview High School. Two half days will be focused on offense and two half days will be spent on defense. The cost is $169 and participants will receive T-shirts and meet a current or former Lions player. The event features high-energy instruction and highly-interactive drills video analysis, chalk talk, skill competition and scrimmages, life lessons and a leadership seminar.
 
There is a 10 to 1 Athlete to Coach ratio during the camp. Current or former Lions players attend the 4-day camps to work with the participants, speak to the participants about life in the NFL and sign autographs. Fundamentals of all positions on offense, defense and special teams will be taught in addition to life skills such as goal setting, teamwork, communication, sportsmanship and the importance of education.
 
"We work year-round to build a solid curriculum that provides a fun and educational foundation of the game of football while teaching the athlete the benefits of involvement in the game both on and off the field", said Detroit Lions Director of Youth Football, Chris Fritzsching. "Skill development, safety, and the fun participating within the game is the emphasis at every Detroit
Lions Youth Football Camp or Academy we conduct."
 
Detroit Lions Youth Football Camps are non-contact and designed to improve a child's beginning, intermediate, or advanced skill level. The experience provides fundamental instruction on all positions on both sides of the football. Participants are grouped based on age and skill level.
 
The Northview/Lions football camp will be conducted by Chris Fritzsching, Director of Detroit Lions Youth Football, and the Detroit Lions Youth Football Coaching Staff, who are coaches and professional educators from the collegiate and high school ranks.

    When the Reeves Northrup Memorial Bike to the Bay turns 25 this June 21st, it will be extra special for Christine Kajfasz. She has lived with MS for 29 years and will ride in the event for the first time. But this is no easy feet, not for someone with half the horsepower she wishes she could use.
