Imagine spending Father’s Day with your youngster(s) watching them learn fundamental football skills from the best in the business at the Steelers practice facility!!

I know, I know, it’s only February – but before you know it hot weather will be here, and so will the chance for your future NFL stars to not only get in some serious football practice, but to catch a pass from Big Ben too!

And that’s not all!

Before the day ends, each camper will receive a souvenir autograph from Ben and receive a team photo with him.

The Ben Roethlisberger Football Camp will be returning to the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on Sunday, June 16th!

#7 will be on-site to direct the event (as well as be the big guy you see running around the facility all day working with each group) and will be joined by a selection of prep and college coaches from the area. The event is open to boys and girls of all skill levels in grades 1-8. Proceeds benefit the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation.

Registration and more information is available at

So you’re still not sure that THIS is the way you want to spend your Father’s Day Sunday? Well then, let’s see if our parents & grandparents at last year’s camp can convince you, starting with dad Big Ben himself (and photographer Matt Freed):

Check out this fun video shared by parent Eileen Mess:

The camp parents were ON the [foot]ball all day with their tweets, photographs & videos throughout Ben’s camp:
