Welcome to Cliffside Park!
On Friday, June 27th, the second annual "Red Raider" Football Camp concluded at Grantwood Park. Thursday marked the largest day of attendance with approximately 60 children attending from Cliffside Park and Fairview. Players participated in appropriate football activities including speed and agility, coordination, strength, skill, quickness, individual position, game rules. Most importantly, the children had fun. The goal of the program is to get kids involved in football, meet the coaches and learn. Jo Diaz, our football representative planned the stations in addition to explaining duties, coordinating equipment and securing speakers. Coach Babe Mongilia from the Cliffside Park High School attended each day along with several High School football players that helped run the drills. Former NFL, Ohio State and Red Raider Bruce Elia spoke to the children and brought NFL jerseys and helmets while fielding questions from all the campers. T-shirts were provided to all that participated and the camp had no enrollment fee. Participants were encouraged to sign up for football in the Recreation Building any weekday after 1pm. Council President Tom Calabrese attended on Tuesday and was happy to see the children involved in an organized recreation activity. Thank you to Anthony Favorito, Jo Diaz, Coach Babe and all the other coaches and high school players for their time and effort, as well as the Mayor and Council for allowing the opportunity to help better the lives of the youth of Cliffside and Fairview.
