Navy Seals were grounded Thursday, but they still entertained kids with the Boy and Girls Club.

The eight-member parachute team was suppose to drop in at the Heritage Sports Center for a few hundred kids, but our weather changed the plans. Other fun was had for Navy Week Duluth.

The guys signed some autographs and hung out with the kids. Chief Brad Woodard is on the parachute team and he said he looks forward to things like this.

"This is some of the most amazing things we get to do because a lot of times we're training in the platoon and we don't have a lot of time to go to different Boys and Girls Clubs and hang out with kids," Woodard said.

Woodard said the parachute team can land in tight places and pull off cool moves in the air. They're meant to wow the crowd and support navy recruiting.

Woodard said wind is actually a positive thing when it comes to landing, but Thursday there was too much to battle.
