4th Annual Down Set Hut Youth Football Camp Ready to Roll

David SidooDavid Sidoo is proud to join Bobby Singh in presenting the Down Set Hut Football Camp for its fourth year on May 12th, 2012 at the Minoru Oval in Richmond, BC.

Conceived and founded by David Sidoo’s friend, former CFL, NFL and XFL pro footballer, Bobby Singh, the camp takes places on the magical day of May 12th, 2012 at the Minrou Oval in Richmond, BC. The non-contact skills camp is aimed at boys and girls aged 7-15 with football skills and experience ranging from beginner through advanced. Attendees are grouped according to age and, over the course of the day, rotate through different skills stations, each representing one of the eight positions on the football field.

Bobby Singh is the only Pro Football player to win a Super Bowl, XFL Championship, and a Grey Cup, but his success isn’t limited to the football field. Singh was elected as a trustee on the Richmond school board, and his CFL and NFL prospects are carefully weighed against the commitments he made to his community. He is active in different volunteer and community projects, including the Richmond Boys and Girls club.  Bobby Singh wants to help your children be successful by being a part of the football camps in Vancouver.

This event is near and dear to David Sidoo’s heart as it provides invaluable opportunities for youth to develop lifelong team building skills and gain inspiration and guidance from dedicated professional football athletes.

During his formative years at New Westminster Secondary School, David Sidoo was introduced to football, which gave him a sense of validation and focus. David Sidoo earned a scholarship to play football at UBC in 1978, where he became a highly decorated Thunderbird. Following university, David Sidoo went on to be the first Indo Canadian to play in the Canadian Football League—five years with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and one year with the BC Lions.

David retired from football in 1988 but remains active in promoting youth and young adults in the sport through scholarships and events such as Down Set Hut. Each year David Sidoo and Sidoo Family Giving contribute funding to enable a number of local kids to attend the Camp.  David also spends the day on the field, sharing his football expertise and mentoring Camp attendees.

In addition to Bobby Singh and David Sidoo, the exciting line up of coaches for this year’s event includes Geroy Simon (BC Lions), Paul McCallum (BC Lions), Paris Jackson (BC Lions), Shea Emry (Montreal Alouettes), Davis Sanchez (Montreal Alouettes) and more!
