Practice like the pros

The Jacksonville Jaguars, in conjunction with the National Football League's Play Football Month, will host youth football team practices on August 1, 3, 7, 8 and 10. This is the third year of the "Practice Like the Pros" program that began in 2004. These practices will take place on the turf field and will include two teams for each practice session. Media is encouraged to attend.

The sessions are scheduled from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m on the practice fields adjacent to Alltel Stadium. The Greater Jacksonville Pop Warner Association will select the teams and coordinate the arrangements.

Play Football Month, an initiative of USA Football, the NFL and the NFL Players Association, is the "World's Largest Youth Football Celebration" and is designed to promote the sport of football. Young people of all ages can participate in special football events in their communities throughout the month, including clinics, skills competitions, scrimmages, picnics and parades.
