On Saturday, June 28, the sun was not the only thing heating up the western communities. The Royal Palm Beach Wildcats Pop Warner Football Club heated up the fields with a free NFL Punt, Pass & Kick Competition for boys and girls ages six through 15.
The club also conducted a one-day summer football conditioning camp for local football players.
Mike Lavorano, director of football with the Palms West Athletic Association, coordinated the event for the local athletes.
“We had approximately 75 kids for the day who participated in the competition and the conditioning camp,” he told the Town-Crier. “It’s to get the kids out of the house, to have fun and sharpen their skills for those who plan to play football in the fall.”
The Royal Palm Wildcats Pop Warner Football program will play its home games at Seminole Palms Park. The season begins Aug. 1.
