More Important Camp Details
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).
Check-in time and place TBD.
Campers scrimmage in the morning on Wednesday, beginning with the youngest campers. Youngest campers will be ready to check out by 11:00am and all campers should be finished and checked out by 12:00pm. Parents are encouraged to attend the final scrimmages! Check-out is on the grass practice field.
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 $125 per set (helmet, shoulder pads, pants and pads) and $135 per set if rented on the first day of camp. Individual pieces of equipment are available at $50 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.
