Vardaman sets first
summer football camp
Vardaman will hold its first summer football camp Saturday, 9 a.m.-noon at VHS’s Watt Carter Field.
The Vardaman Youth Football Program is proud to put on a youth football camp focusing on the techniques and fundamentals needed to succeed at the youth level and to help players prepare for the 2009 football season.
This is being done by the Vardaman Youth Football Program to raise money to
purchase equiment for the Vardaman Youth Football Team.
Campers will need to come dressed in shorts, t-shirt, and football shoes.
Camp enrollment fee is $20.
At the camp:
* All players will be placed in groups according to their age and ability.
* All players will be assigned to a group to ensure individual and group instruction on both offense and defense fundamentals.
* The coaching staff will thoroughly train and prepare each player throughout the entire day to be a better, more confident football player.
* Each player will receive more than three hours of on-the-field practice time throughout the camp.
The camp is open to all kids ages 5-15. All players from any league, team, or division are welcome to attend, as well as new players coming out for football for the first time. Parents are also welcomed to attend and watch.

Corps of Engineers
Implements Corps Watch
n The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is implementing the Corps Watch program. The program is a neighborhood crime-watch deterrence program to protect Corps of Engineers assets.
Each year, millions of dollars in federal property are lost due to vandalism, larceny, arson and environmental and cultural degradation. This program is designed to heighten public awareness of the seriousness of the impacts of crime within or around dams, lakes, navigation locks, recreation areas and other Corps facilities.
To help fight these crimes and reduce operations and maintenance costs, the Corps of Engineers has received Congressional authority to offer cash rewards of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of individuals causing damage to government property.
Callers can remain anonymous. The number is (866) 413-7970 and can be utilized 24 hours a day.
