Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and former center Jeff Hartings will be hosts for the hhgregg All Pro Dad Father and Kids Experience from 9 a.m. to noon June 25 at the UPMC Sports Performance Complex.
The event provides bonding opportunities for fathers and their children through hands-on events, such as football-themed drills designed to teach the men how to be better fathers and how to spend quality time interacting with their kids.
"All of us at Family First and All Pro Dad are excited that this event continues to be an annual outing for dads and kids," said Mark Merrill, founder and president of Family First. "Just as in years past, again this year we are bringing new themes and insights into the program, so the format remains familiar, but the concepts are fresh for returning dads and kids."
Registration opens today online at www.AllProDad.com and is $15 per family, which includes admission for one adult and up to four children. The event is recommended for children ages five and older. Advanced registration is required and early registration is encouraged as the event is expected to sell out.
The All Pro Dad Father & Kids Experience is the football-themed event of All Pro Dad, the fatherhood program of Family First, a national non-profit organization based in Tampa, Fla. Launched with the help of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy in 1997, All Pro Dad features almost 60 NFL players, coaches, and alumni who encourage men to be good fathers.
