Raiders rookies attend junior training camp at a local boys and girls club

The Las Vegas Raiders continue to be committed to children in communities across Southern Nevada.

It’s been a busy month for the Raiders who, after completing their minicamp training activities, are now participating in another type of training camp.

The Raiders’ rookie class of 2022 attended the Donald W. Reynolds Boys & Girls Club in Henderson, Nevada, and participated in football drills with the club’s children as part of a Raiders Junior Training Camp (RJTC).

The day started with the Raiders rookies sitting inside with Boys and Girls Club leaders to learn more about the programs and services they offer youth in Southern Nevada and how the organization is working to shape the future of youth, transitioning them into adulthood with healthy habits and a plan for their future.

After a few club meetings, the team recruits led a group of team members from the Boys and girls club taking part in various football and training exercises with the children of the club.

The players spoke to youngsters during RJTC, a 60-minute youth football clinic hosted by the Raiders for boys and girls that focuses on education, exercise and positive choices for youngsters. children in a safe and fun environment. The RJTC curriculum has been designed so that any student can participate, regardless of age, gender, ability or experience.

The club also offers a full program of programs, including distance learning, academic tutoring, arts and crafts, leadership training, health and wellness, service opportunities, sports and esports, workforce development, college scholarships, and a meal program.

This isn’t the first time the Raiders have worked with the Boys and Girls Club of Southern Nevada.

Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson raised $50,000 for the children of the Boys and Girls Club earlier this year by connecting field goals throughout the regular season.

After last season’s finale, Pittsburgh Steelers fans helped Carlson win “My Cause My Cleats” charity by donating amounts after his game-winning basket that sent the Steelers to the NFL playoffs last season.
