The Miami Dolphins Youth Programs’ vision is to prepare the next generation of leaders in staying physically active through our Junior Training Camps, Youth Football Clinics and Youth Football Camps.
“Our kids (Phileo Outreach Ministries) had a great time,” said Trisha Johnson, community liaison for the Phileo Outreach Ministries. “We truly appreciate the Miami Dolphins inviting us to the training camp.”
Bobby Watson, recreation specialist for North Miami, said: “The Miami Dolphins Summer Junior Training Camp is something that my campers and staff look forward to every summer. The participants really love the opportunity to play inside ‘the bubble’ and enjoy watching the team practice. For many campers, this is their first time seeing professional athletes in person. It is truly a great experience, and we look forward to the experience again next summer.”
Maurice Brazier, co-owner and COO of Liberty Academy in Miami, added: “When Liberty Academy was informed that our summer campers were invited to participate at the Miami Dolphins Junior Training Camp, the expectations among the campers and counselors were very high. One would have thought that it would have been impossible to exceed those expectations, but Miami Dolphins Junior Training Camp managed to do just that. The entire experience for our campers and the adults that accompanied them was amazing. We look forward to attending the Miami Dolphins Junior Training Camp next year.”
