FAQ

Football Camps

  • Do I need to bring my helmet and shoulder pads?

    No. Our football camps are actually non-contact. We’re focused on developing youth athletes from a fundamental and technical standpoint. You will only need to bring football cleats for the on-field sessions. 

  • I play two positions. Do I have to train at one position while at camp?

    Our camps are set up to enable you to train at both positions while attending camp. During a week of camp, we have ten on-field training sessions: Five in the morning and five in the afternoon. If you would like to train for multiple positions, we can certainly accommodate that. 

  • Do your camps incorporate any type of weight-lifting?

    Yes, the strength & conditioning aspect is an important component to our camp model. Depending on the camp program you select, you will get varying levels of performance training, including strength, speed, mental, nutrition and other elements.

  • Will I be able to compete against other campers?

    Absolutely. While the emphasis of our camp will be personalized, position-specific training, we do include opportunities for the campers to compete against one another in 1-on-1 drills and 7-on-7 games. 

  • Do you offer 1-on-1 private lessons?

    Yes. Private lessons are offered as part of the Breakthrough program, which offers 1-on-1 or small-group training that is customized and offers the ultimate camp experience.
