Camp Details

Quarterbacks and receivers are two of the most skilled positions in the game, and they demand a great deal of discipline and repetition in perfecting the skill and techniques necessary to perform at these positions. However, in most cases, team practice cannot devote the individualized attention and concentration needed to maximize potential in the two areas of passing and receiving. If your expectations of yourself go beyond being average then this is the clinic for you.

    Learned so much!

    Our son has attended many football camps, but he told us that he had learned more at this one than at any other. He is very excited to bring what he was taught to the field this season. We are already making plans to bring him back next year!

    Critical in my preparation for the season

    I strongly recommend the NEFC to all high school football players because it is a great camp to learn and be exposed to many different coaching styles and fundamentals, which are critical in preparation for the season. I look forward to coming back next year.

    Great coach/camper ratio

    Great camp for wide receivers and QBs. Not a meat market like some other camps. Tons of reps and great coach/camper ratio. See you next year.

    I give the NE Clinic a lot of credit for my great season.

    Your clinic really got my footwork better, helped me a lot on speed and gave me more precise mechanics. I give NE QB/R Clinic a lot of credit for my great season.  Thank you and see you this summer.

    Increased my confidence

    The clinic helped me to work on my accuracy and reading defenses, leading me to throw only one interception off a tipped ball. Also gave me the confidence to throw the ball away when necessary.

    • 5/5.
    Staff continues to be my professional spring board.

    I feel an immense sense of gratitude toward the Northeast Football Clinic.  They developed me first as a player to compete at the collegiate level and then poured the foundation for my coaching career. This staff continues to be my professional spring board.
