While many of the parents and coaches love the game of football, many believe the most important things their children learn from playing football are lessons about life.
"I enjoy coaching the kids, it's great to see them develop from start to finish," Launier said.
Peter Casey, who coaches the Mighty Mites team, said, "I think this is a great thing. We get to teach the kids the fundamentals while ensuring that they have fun in order to ensure they want to keep playing."
Teams from Merrimack, the Seacoast, Amherst, Bedford, Concord are participating. The jamboree isn't just for the boys though, as many cheerleading teams will also be in attendance fine-tuning their routines.
