For the fifth consecutive year, the NFL will partner with Pro Football Hall of Fame offensive tackle, Anthony Muñoz, to host seven NFL PLAY 60 Character Camps this summer. The program is part of the NFL’s year-round Hispanic outreach initiative, which offers youth opportunities to play and experience the game of football.

Starting in New York, the NFL PLAY 60 Character Camps will be hosted in seven markets — Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Oakland, San Diego and Washington. Each site will welcome nearly 300 predominantly Hispanic 9 to 13-year-olds from local youth organizations, with little or no football experience.

“I’m thrilled to kick off the fifth year of the NFL PLAY 60 Character Camps,” said Anthony Muñoz, Hall of Fame offensive tackle and Chairman/Founder of the Anthony Muñoz Hall of Fame Foundation. “These local level efforts have a tremendous impact on the children from these varied communities, and it’s an honor to work with them each and every year. When I was young, interacting with and learning directly from my NFL heroes was huge, and these camps continue that cause today.”

The camps’ mission is to make a positive impact on youth through teaching football skills, emphasizing exercise and reinforcing the importance of character in sports and life. These grassroots efforts have made a strong impact in these communities and are creating a lot of momentum for a broader movement.

The program will work with USA Football — the official youth football development partner of the NFL and its 32 teams — and its NFL FLAG curriculum, which introduces participants to physical activity through non-contact, continuous action while teaching them the fundamentals of football and lessons in teamwork and sportsmanship.

Participants will learn the character values that are at the core of the Anthony Muñoz Foundation and learn more about NFL PLAY 60 — the league’s youth health and fitness campaign, aimed at getting kids active for 60 minutes a day.

Since the launch of the NFL PLAY 60 Character Camps in 2012, more than 50 camps have reached nearly 20,000 youth across the country.
