From Punt, Pass & Kick and NFL FLAG to obstacle courses and relay races, all Hometown Huddle activity stations are designed to complement the NFL's PLAY 60 campaign and reinforce the importance of daily physical activity.
Since 1999, NFL clubs have partnered with United Way for Hometown Huddle, a league-wide day of service designed to bring awareness to the issue of youth health and fitness. Each year, NFL players, coaches and leadership participate in a variety of youth fitness projects in different NFL cities across the country on the same day – building fitness zones, hosting youth football clinics, rebuilding neighborhood playgrounds and upgrading fitness facilities.
Throughout the year, Titans players and representatives make appearances at schools and community events to encourage kids to be active for at least 60 minutes a day. For more information on the Titans long-standing PLAY 60 efforts, click here.
