Future Stars Football Clinic serves the Fort Walton Beach and surrounding communities as a tool to develop youths ages 6-13 via the powerful sport of football. The ultimate objective of the structured 9-week clinic, which balances fun, rigorous training and mentorship to produce a positive learning environment, is to instill in the participants self-confidence via the mastery of football safety and fundamentals. Further still, we create an environment in which children integrate together as a team through sport, but more importantly as a community via community service events, taking ownership of our society whose legacy will one-day rest in their hands.
Practically, the clinic is conducted Saturday mornings and is divided as follows: 2 days agility drills, 2 days each for offensive and defensive skills, 2 days for community service, and the final day for a field day. The objective is to tailor the difficulty level to the different age groups, focusing on muscular and cardiovascular conditioning, technique and safety for each and every drill. Honing these skills in the off-season prepares the athletes to step into the football season, and also other sports, with a stronger foundation to build on. Furthermore, maintaining strength and conditioning helps prevent common injuries that result from weak muscles and fatigue.
FSFC achieves these objectives via our motto that ?If we believe we can, then we will? and by focusing on our 5 critical pillars of success: Practice, Teamwork, Discipline, Focus and Respect. Each clinic begins and culminates with an interactive discussion of these pillars in open-ended conversations with the participants, and how the pillars apply to life and the skills taught that day. FSFC?s success is contingent upon the energy of the 30-40 person volunteer force composed of committed citizens, military members, coaches, high school athletes, and guest speakers, including collegiate and professional level athletes that interact with the youth. Transcending sport, FSFC utilizes football as the canvas to unite the community to mentor our youth, painting a future for confident individuals who believe their community is invested in them to achieve success on the field as athletes, and in life as responsible, committed citizens.
The obvious beneficiaries of FSFC are the youth, yet the ultimate objective is to enrich the lives of all people that make FSFC possible. For the high school athlete volunteers, FSFC facilitates opportunities to learn the value of service by teaching the next generation while promoting maturity, character growth, and positive social interactions that oppose the negative temptations that teenagers face. Additionally, it cannot be stressed enough how crucial the many small business sponsors are to the success of FSFC. Local small businesses, families and friends are absolutely the financial backbone that provides the equipment for the FSFC athletes. Therefore, the FSFC directors strive to promote our sponsors via three sponsorship levels that include marketing benefits such as featuring company logos on the FSFC website and social media, banners at the clinics, and discount cards.
