Camp Code: FBXRNY
Contact Football Camps feature full contact drills and scrimmages with a staff of major college coaches and players. At camps "contact" is introduced in a slow, gradual progression before any actual "contact" is initiated. Campers are divided according to age, weight and ability.
The instruction (3 times a day) stresses both individual positions and team play with every camper. Thousands of our previous football campers played, or are now playing college football (many at schools represented by our coaching staff).
Campers need a full set of football equipment - helmet, shoulder pads, two jerseys (one light/one dark), pants and pads, football shoes (NO metal-tip cleats), athletic supporter, cup and mouthpiece. For campers without equipment, Contact Football Camp has equipment for rent prior to camp at $95 per set (helmet, shoulder pads, pants and pads) and $100 per set if rented on the first day of camp. Individual pieces of equipment are available at $45 per item.

A detailed camper registration packet containing check-in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers prior to camp. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp.
Contact Football Campers will train at Boswell Field. For nearly 100 years, Boswell Field has been one of the most renowned sports venues in collegiate athletics. During 2010, the Boz was upgraded with the installation of state-of-the-art FieldTurf and lighting for night games and practices, resulting in a first-class facility that is safe and comfortable for spectators and augments the performances of student-athletes.
