Tired of sitting inside during the endless winter? You can escape the winter blues at NFL Play 60, which takes place at the Heinz History Center and Sports Museum on Jan 26th. This awesome family friendly event is a sports lovers dream, where young fans can live out their fantasies of training like NFL players–or at least attempt to do so.

Any football fan has always wondered what it’s like to train with the Pros. The NFL Play 60 takes fans off the sidelines and puts them in the huddle for a game winning drive–from running a 40-yard dash to passing drills. Have your touchdown celebration dance ready! It’s a winning combination, and the event is free for kids ages 17 and under.

Established in 2007, the program inspires young fans to exercise for at least 60 minutes a day–and what better way to encourage fans then an actual NFL training course! The program has become increasingly popular each year, hosted in NFL cities throughout the country.

If you’re not into drills, there’s still plenty to score at the event. You can meet local professional athletes, along with chances to win prizes throughout the day. The ticket also includes full access to the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum, which features the new Super Steelers and Hockey exhibits.

And don’t forget to use the hashtag #Play60 to share your experience with other NFL fans. The event runs from 10am-2pm.
