Youth participated in a free football and cheer clinic to receive instruction on football-related activities and drills July 19, while cheer clinic participants learned cheer routines for an end-of-the-day performance.

The clinic was held at the Joe W. Brown Park football field for youth ages 5 to 14. Coaches from the Sun Belt Conference and former members of the Saints and Pelicans dance team led the clinic, which is sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl, R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl and Sun Belt Conference and presented by Chevron.
