HIALEAH, FL. - ASA College has built a strong partnership with Hialeah Parks & Recreation since our arrival to South Florida in 2014. For the third consecutive year, ASA Miami Football coaches volunteered their time to help run the NFL Play 60 camp at Ted Hendricks Stadium last Friday afternoon. 

The camp drew nearly 300 kids at the home of the ASA Miami football and soccer programs. In addition to the ASA Miami football staff, there were other important members of the community in attendance. City of Hialeah officials, volunteer coaches and even NFL Hall-Of-Famer Anthony Munoz spent some time with the kids.


In October 2007, the NFL launched NFL PLAY 60, a national youth health and fitness campaign focused on increasing the wellness of young fans by encouraging them to be active for at least 60 minutes a day.

Designed to tackle childhood obesity, NFL PLAY 60 brings together the NFL's long-standing commitment to health and fitness with an impressive roster of partner organizations. In addition to national outreach and online programs, NFL PLAY 60 is implemented at the grassroots level through NFL's in-school, after-school and team-based programs. The NFL PLAY 60 initiative is prominent during the NFL's key calendar events, including Super Bowl, Pro Bowl, Draft, Kickoff and Thanksgiving and is supported by many NFL players and coaches year round. To date, the NFL has dedicated over $200 million to youth health and wellness through NFL PLAY 60.
