For the seventh consecutive year, Pop Warner and Panini America will host the Panini-Pop Warner Skills Clinic as part of the NFL Super Bowl week festivities.
This year's event will take place on Friday, January 31 in New York City at Chelsea Piers in lower Manhattan.
More than 150 New York-area Pop Warner athletes will get to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime experience by working on skills and drills led by various NFL stars.
Headlining this year's NFL players are New York Giants Pro Bowler Jason Pierre-Paul, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas, New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley and 2013 NFL rookies EJ Manuel and Denard Robinson. Each player will offer insight and instruction at the 7th Annual Panini Pop Warner Skills Clinic.
During the two-hour clinic, Pierre-Paul, Manuel, Robinson, Douglas and Kerley will lead athletes through a series of informative football drills and talk to them about their own experiences. After the clinic, the players will sign autographs for all participants.
In years past, the Panini Pop Warner Skills Clinic has featured such guest coaches as Geno Smith, Doug Martin, DeAngelo Williams, Andy Dalton, Von Miller, Brandon Lloyd, Kevin Kolb, Vinny Testaverde, Case Keenum and Tim Tebow.
“The Panini Pop Warner Skills Clinic is a special event that provides local Pop Warner football programs the opportunity to be a part of the Super Bowl experience in a compelling way,” said Jason Howarth, Panini America Vice President of Marketing. “We’re extremely proud of how this event has grown and its ability to give Pop Warner participants the opportunity to engage and interact with NFL Players.”
