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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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!

    Thanks!

    Great opportunity to learn and improve skills, have been to several camp and would go to it again.

    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.

    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.

    Made the difference in my college acceptance

    The skills that I acquired at NE Clinic allowed me to have a very strong season and I believe, made the difference for my college acceptance.

    • 5/5.
    Learned my most valuable moves

    I have attended numerous professional player and Division I camps, however, I learned my most valuable moves at the NE Clinic,  especially my overall footwork which has been key for me.

    • 5/5.
    Never realized how much you could learn

    I never realized how much you could learn at a clinic of this type, it was excellent. I learned more in the first hour than I learned all season.

    Best sports clinic I've ever attended

    This was the best sports-oriented clinic I’ve ever been to. I’ve learned more in the past weekend than I’ve ever learned .
