Published on April 3, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

NEW YORK, USA -- The Barbados Tourism Authority has announced the launch of the ‘Big Mon Elite Athlete Development Camp’ in Barbados April 4-8, 2013 hosted by Super Bowl champions Baltimore Ravens for the children of Barbados. Barbadian native, Ramon Harewood will be returning to his hometown with teammates Ray Rice, Torrey Smith, Michael Oher and Bryan Hall to host a world-class football training camp for the local children.

“It is with great pleasure that I announce the launch of the Big Mon Elite Athlete Development Camp for the children of Barbados,” said Ramon Harewood, offensive lineman for the Baltimore Ravens. “The strong academic foundation and diverse athletic training I received growing up in Barbados has enabled me to achieve success on many levels as an adult and it is an honour to share what I have learned with the younger generation.”

The football camp will feature one-on-one training sessions focusing on the importance of stretching, fitness drills and key football techniques for 200 Bajan children between the ages of 11-18. In addition to the camp's daily training sessions the children will have the opportunity to speak with the players about their careers and inspirations as well as attend a public autograph signing and special screening of Michael Oher's biographical movie, "The Blind Side."

“The Barbados Tourism Authority is thrilled to partner with Ramon Harewood and The Baltimore Ravens on this special camp for the island’s children,” said Campbell Rudder, vice president marketing USA of the Barbados Tourism Authority. “Ramon’s proud heritage and drive to give back to the community continues to inspire Barbadians nationwide.”
