The BC Lions gave local kids a chance to “Play With The Pros” during an annual event held at the CFL football team’s Surrey turf on Sunday (July 15).

The two-hour event involved the help of several CFL players in a non-contact skills clinic, for dozens of children aged six to 12.

The budding footballers are divided into groups and rotate through eight stations every 10 to 15 minutes, for tips on passing, receiving, blocking and tackling.
