Pete Carroll Debuts Online World For Kids
April 22, 2009
USC football head coach Pete Carroll has been called the 'coolest 57-year-old kid in Los Angeles.' He's more in touch with technology than most teenagers. He was one of the first head coaches with his own Web site, the first to embrace Facebook, the first on Twitter, and now, he is the first Coach to have his own Online World for Kids.
www.CampPete.com is a ground-breaking Web site aimed at bringing Carroll's unique 'Win Forever' philosophy to children all over the country by taking advantage of one of the hottest technology trends online, the virtual world.
At www.CampPete.com, kids can customize their own football player then explore a massive football fantasy land where footballs fly through air in the 'Special Teams Jungle,' and spaceships blast off to the 'Penalty Planet.' Kids can create their own 'Locker Page' and receive motivational messages from Carroll. It's a fun and safe online environment where all chats are filtered.
You could even call it the 'healthy video game!' Carroll believes in getting young people active so he's made sure kids can earn points INSIDE the game for exercise they do in real life.
Carroll created this site for children of all ages. In additional to teaching teamwork, leadership and healthy habits, he teaches football basics appropriate for kids as young as age 5. And there are more advanced football techniques for older kids. Kids can play for FREE or upgrade to MVP Membership!
A portion of all proceeds goes to support Carroll's community outreach program, A Better LA.
