North Miami Beach, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins yesterday hosted a football clinic for the Davie, Hallandale Beach and North Miami Beach Police Athletic/Activities League (PAL) chapters at Mishcon Park. Dolphins safety Walt Aikens and Junior Dolphins coaches led elementary and middle school participants through fundamental football drills in a fun and safe environment. Aikens also recently was named a National PAL spokesperson.

 “I grew up a PAL kid, so I felt like it’s my duty to come back, give back to the community and show PAL kids that if they keep their hard work up and are dedicated then they could succeed in anything,” Aikens said.

 “We at the City of North Miami Beach can’t thank the Dolphins enough. It has been awesome. The Dolphins organization has stepped up,” North Miami Beach Vice Mayor Beth E. Spiegel. “These are our kids. They’re not just North Miami Beach kids. There are kids from the surrounding areas. There are no words. It’s so amazing that (the Dolphins) came out here and are giving our children this opportunity.”
