Camp Details

In most high school situations, preseason or in-season, team practice cannot devote the individualized attention and concentration necessary for ultimate success. Discipline, perseverance, repetition, and understanding the total concepts of offensive line techniques and defensive line reads are essential to be able to meet the great expectations which come with these positions. If your expectations go beyond being average then this is the clinic for you.

    • 5/5.
    Great work of fundamentals and technique

    July 9, 2018: Great coach to student ratio. Also, noticed all coaches displaying great enthusiasm. Great work of fundamentals and technique. Teams often need to allocate their time in different ways leaving basic fundamentals aside. Great time to focus solely on skill improvement. Excellent for all levels of ability.

    My son was able to get out of his comfort zone

    August 13, 2018: My son was able to get out of his comfort zone and play with unknown teammates and still feel confident. He is a very smart player and knows the game and this helped him confirm that! He has never been about accolades even though the recipient of many, playing the game the best he can has been his biggest motivation. Being able to meet other players out of his area and staying overnight with a firm agenda/schedule was a big growth experience for him.

    • 5/5.
    He loved the drills and the techniques

    July 10, 2018: There were some good foot work drills he learned and some good blocking schemes that he learned. His favorite is definitely razzle dazzle, but he loved the drills and the techniques the coaches were teaching. He thought all the coaches were very personable and approachable with any questions he had.

    My footwork got much better

    I learned a ton about good O-line footwork. My favorite part of camp was the 1-on-1 blocking drills at the end of the sessions

    • 5/5.
    My son loves going back to basics. He said it really helps with his technique

    Having one of the coaches stop the drill for him to say that my son had the technique that they all should be striving for was the highlight of the week for my son. My one suggestion would be shorter breaks between lunch and the afternoon sessions.

    — Debra F., Parent 2017

    • 5/5.
    He will be back!

    My son Joey's attended the camp for 4 years and loves it there! The coaches are great and very effective teachers! His favorite part was the "one-on-one" portion of camp.

    • 5/5.
    I learned a lot about form and effective movement!

    I loved the camp as a whole. The coaches were effective and helpful teachers that helped me improve my football skills and focus on the basics that will be the foundation for my season coming up. The film that we watched was instructive and let us visualize the tackling fundamentals. It was a great camp that I will definitely attend again and will recommend to my friends.

    This was a great camp and it showed , today at his team practice ,when some of the biggest kids on the team could not block him. Thanks!

    Great Clinic!

    I wouldn't change anything. It's a little pricey, but a fair enough value that I'd send my other boys to it in the coming years.

    Anxious to not miss a single minute

    Coming from the Chicago area where there is a scarcity of position-related camps, I was more than pleased to travel all this way for such solid instruction for my junior linebacker. The first day he was hesitant not knowing anyone, but after day 1 he was anxious to not miss a single minute of drills.

    • 5/5.
    Teaches more than just the game

    The camp does a great job of teaching the fundamentals, which prepare athletes to play at a college level, but also teaching the boys more than just the game. I love the stories of recruitment visits and how young men who are not respectful get passed over.

    — John C., Parent of NE Clinic Attendee '15

    • 5/5.
    Loved the intensity and comradery

    Both of my sons attended this camp. Although grueling, they both loved the intensity and the comradery. They learned techniques they weren't aware of. Both will return next summer.

    Learned my most valuable moves
