BREVARD COUNTY • ROCKLEDGE, FLORIDA – Some traditions are important community events that evolve over time, while others are just plain fun. 

Rockledge’s annual “I Got Skillz” instructional football camp is a combination of both. This year’s theme is “Let’s Go to Work! – Building Good Character By Positively Helping Each Other.” Admission for children aged 5-15 is free.

This free clinic is conducted by former NFL, collegiate, local high school all-stars and community leaders. Attendees will be taught football fundamentals, life skills, character building, education, sportsmanship and teamwork.

The combine also includes an obstacle course, team building and health awareness education.

The I Got Skillz Mommy Combine is for all mothers, and is set for Saturday, July 23 at the McKnight Family Sports Complex, located at 960 Cogswell Street in Rockledge from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There is a $20 donation for the Womens Center for mothers who wish to participate.

I Got Skillz was founded by Space Coast Sports Hall of Famer Michael Cadore, who is currently the public safety coordinator at Eastern Florida State College and a police officer for the Rockledge Police Department.

“As a public servant, educator, citizen and more importantly a parent, it is essential that we show our youth the right way. I am so humbled to see the out poor of volunteers.”

“We must keep in mind, if we don’t serve our community now, don’t expect your community to serve you later.”
