Raiders in the community
The Raiders return to Las Vegas on Saturday to partner with USA Football to host a four-hour clinic at Liberty High School for local high school and middle school coaches. The Raiders are covering all clinic costs.
“These clinics are developed by football experts and medical specialists to help coaches provide exceptional football experiences to their student-athletes,” the team’s news release read. “Coaches also will gain insight on running more productive and efficient practices as well as an effective approach to teach contact.”
