The West Coast rapper is expanding his youth football league based in Los Angeles to the Windy City. The Snoop Youth Football League will hold a free football clinic Friday for hundreds of 8- to 14-year-old boys who live in Chicago Housing Authority, the Sun-Times reports.
Chicago is the first city outside the Golden State to get its own league. Teams will hit the field starting next year.
Snoop Dogg, a former high school quarterback, started the program in 2005 with a $1 million investment. He's coached his son's youth and high school football teams.
Snoop, his league commissioner, team coach and former Chicago Bears players will attend the clinic.
"This allows them to see the artist giving back to the community," said Crystal Brown Black, executive director of Windows of Opportunity, the CHA's nonprofit affiliate. "Their ability to go onto a field and learn techniques in football is kind of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
