Contact Football Camp San Jose State
Contact Football Camp San Jose State

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 Contact Football Camp at San Jose State is an opportunity to work with Menlo Head Coach and former quarterback of the San Jose SaberCats of the Arena Football League (AFL) Mark Grieb and take your game to the next level!

Each day campers work on conditioning, fundamentals and technique at individual positions.  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).

Highlights Include

  • Individual Camp ages 8-18
  • Grouping by age, weight and ability
  • Contact Drills and Scrimmages
  • Contact Football Camp T-shirt and Prizes
  • Great exposure to college coaches
  • Daily training to develop speed, strength and agility

Derek Ayoob is an excellent camp director

My twin boys attended two other camps this year and the Menlo camp was far superior; only camp that actually provided instruction and helped my sons in the respective positions to improve their skills. Derek Ayoob is an excellent camp director, always approachable, very encouraging to all the campers, and kept order both on and off the field. My twins boys had the time of their life and already we are planning to return to this camp next year at Menlo College and I know there are other locations in CA but my sons are insisting on returning to Menlo. My husband and I agree.

I learned so much!

I had a great time! I played the offensive and defensive positions that I wanted. Thank you! The coaches seemed tough at first, but in the end I learned so much. I really appreciate the time the coaches spent with me! I met new friends who will be coming back next year and so will I.

After this camp I can't wait for football season to start

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.
