Senator John Heinz History Center

January 31
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Before you watch the Super Bowl on Sunday, sprint over to the Heinz History Center‘s NFL PLAY 60 Training Camp the day before.

Hosted by the Center’s Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum, the third annual Super Saturday event features five floors of football-themed activities for all and is FREE for kids 17 and under. 

From noon to 1 p.m., fans can meet former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman and current sports radio host Chris Hoke and join in football drills with the 11-year NFL veteran.

Head to the mini-NFL Combine to test your speed in the 40-yard dash, assess your accuracy passing a football and challenge your agility completing quick-hitting drills.

Show off your best moves during a touchdown dance contest, enjoy healthy cooking demos in the Weisbrod Kitchen Classroom and take a guided tour of the Western Pennsylvania Sports Museum.

You can also compete to win exciting prizes throughout the day—including items signed by Steelers Troy Polamalu and William Gay—and receive special giveaways from Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Co-presented by the History Center, Pittsburgh Steelers and NFL PLAY 60—the National Football League’s health and fitness campaign that encourages young fans to be active for at least 60 minutes each day—the event is sponsored by Dick’s Sporting Goods.

All activities and admission to the History Center exhibitions are free for children ages 17 and under. Advance registration is not required.
