Last year, I received an invitation to attend Ben Roethlisberger’s Youth Football Camp as a media member and I jumped at the chance. Selfishly, I was looking forward to the chance to interview the QB of the Steelers, not something many get to do. But when I arrived at the camp and then witnessed several hours of it, I came away utterly impressed by the folks at ProCamps and with Roethlisberger.
This year, he and ProCamps are offering a completely new opportunity for kids and I know Big Ben is very excited about it. Details below.
All-Pro Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has announced the date and location of his inaugural Youth Fantasy Experience.
The Ben Roethlisberger Youth Fantasy Experience presented by SunnyD will be held on June 18th at the Steelers Practice Facility. Participants will learn fundamental football skills skills and have the opportunity to meet and interact with the All-Pro Quarterback. Each participant will receive a souvenir autograph from Ben, have the opportunity to participate in the Big Ben Skills combine, catch a pass from Ben, and receive a team photo with Ben.
Roethlisberger will be on-site to direct the event and will be joined by a selection of prep and college coaches from the area. The event is open to boys and girls of all skill levels in grades 1-8. Cost of the event is $199. Proceeds benefit the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation.
The event’s premier partners include UPMC Sports Medicine, Giant Eagle, and #1 Cochran. The event’s media partners are KDKA-TV, 93.7 The Fan, and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Event partners include Cincy Apparel, Citi, Welch’s Fruit Snacks, FanMug, Old Spice, Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation, BigBen7.com, Ben Roethlisberger Foundation, and Wilson.
