Incarnate Word’s 154-acre campus is just minutes from downtown San Antonio in Alamo Heights. The Alamo Heights area is filled with a variety of tourist attractions including the Witte Museum, the McNay Art Museum, the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, and Brackenridge Park. Brackenridge Park is home to the San Antonio Zoo and the Japanese Tea Gardens, and is filled with trails and other scenic areas to run, walk, or just enjoy an afternoon picnic or barbeque. In addition to being located in one of the most picturesque parts of the city, UIW’s welltended grounds, trees, blooming flowers, and classic architecture, provide a comfortable environment to study, think, and just hang out with friends. 

Contact Football Campers will train on the Gayle and Tom Benson Stadium. The stadium officially opened on campus September 1, 2008, when the Bensons joined with more than 2,000 Cardinals fans and athletes to declare the facility ready for action. Benson and his family long have been ardent supporters of Incarnate Word. A San Antonian himself, Benson is the owner of professional football's New Orleans Saints. The stadium has permanent seating for 6,000 spectators and the playing area itself is artificial, Hellas Matrix. This is a great facility to take your game to the next level!

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.

My son's confidence grew

"Great first experience at football camp. My son was engaged and had a fantastic time. His confidence grew tremendously! Thank you!!"

Sage advice was shared with him by several of the coaches

"My son was an Ironman at camp. 3 a day football practices in Texas heat, and twice during the week he returned home to catch for his all-star baseball team. (Took second in tournament) All the camp staff were very supportive and offered encouragement for him. As tired as he was, he was always anxious to get back to his dorm and friends and coaches. On Thursday night, after a particularly had day of football practice, and a tough .. first loss in baseball, my son and I sat out on the front steps of the dorm having a hamburger, with a couple of coaches. Sage advice was shared with him by several of the coaches.. about life, sports and winning and loosing and how it relates to life. It was a great opportunity for me to witness my little ten year old boy interact with adults... be treated by them, talked to by them, and him exhibiting the qualities and traits of the man I hope he grows up to be. I am grateful to all the coaches and staff at contact football camp that are helping him along one week a year to grow up. See you next year.Thanks to all the great coaches and staff."

After this camp I can't wait until football season starts

"This was my first overnight camp and I could not stop talking about it when I returned home. My love for the game was only reinforced when I had the opportunity to attend this camp. I felt that my skill level was increased and cannot wait until the football season starts to show others what I learned and also what they could learn by attending this wonderful camp. I look forward to next season."

The campers included all ages

"My son was the youngest camper at the Contact Football Camp at Southwestern. Initially I was nervous about him participating, but the camp counselors made sure he was in a group with kids around his same size. He was easily immersed into the games/drills by all. The kids were great and he had a wonderful time. We will be sending him again next year."
