Play with the Pros
One of the BC Lions’ most popular and recognizable community programs, Play with the Pros is an annual free initiative that involves Lions players teaching boys and girls the basics of football by having them participate in a non-contact skills clinic.
With the support of Football BC, the governing body for amateur football in British Columbia, the Play with the Pros program involved more than 1,500 youth between the ages of 6 and 12 during the 2012 season. This past fall, many of the Lions’ most prominent players participated in community football practices throughout the lower mainland.
New in 2013, the BC Lions’ Huddle Up Against Bullying program will focus on delivering anti-bullying messaging to kids ages 6 to 13 through our very popular amateur football programs, such as Play with the Pros. The program’s founding partners are Seaspan, Intact Insurance and Uniglobe.
Our next Play with the Pros session will take place on Sunday, July 7 at the club’s practice facility located in Surrey.
