Marshfield Hurricane football players get kids moving at summer camp

MARSHFIELD — The semi-professional football players of the Marshfield Hurricanes and members of the Massachusetts National Guard towered over the herds of 5 to 13-year-old campers at the Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield, guiding them through relay races and obstacle courses.

The Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield hosted a football clinic on Friday, Aug. 5 during the final weeks of its 10-week summer program. Attendance at this year’s camp almost doubled from last year with 220 campers, jumping up from 130 in 2021. The kids hail from towns across the South Shore.

The Hurricanes, who play in the semi-professional East Coast Football League, came to town Friday to teach the campers throwing and catching skills, and held relay races.

Madeline Frank, 8, of Marshfield, said she enjoyed cheering on her teammates in the relay races.

“It’s pretty fun and I like learning new things, especially sports,” Madeline said.
