For the 16th straight year, Jason Garrett Starfish Charities will host the 16th Annual PLAY IT SMART Football Camp and Leadership Forum in partnership with the AthLife Foundation on Saturday, June 16 at Garrett's alma mater Princeton University.
During the one-day, free, non-contact football camp, student athletes from schools in New Jersey and New York are coached by Garrett, current and former NFL players and coaches, as well as college and area high school coaches. The purpose of the day is to inspire the participants to excel and to focus on having college as part of their future plans.
Camp coaches and volunteers help the participants with both football and life skills that will prepare them for the next season and beyond with an emphasis on making good choices on and off the field.
As part of the experience, the historic Nassau Inn will host volunteer coaches and staff to a Leadership Forum and dinner on Friday evening, June 15. Guest speakers, coaches, former campers and staff will discuss all aspects of leadership, its importance and how to inspire it in all walks of life.
