Non-Contact Football Camp Franklin Road Academy
Improve your game and have serious fun
at Contact Football Camps
Football camp provides young players the opportunity to improve their skill level no matter their experience. Whether you are a first time player or a prime time player, you will be challenged in a way that lets you improve your fundamentals during the week. Campers will receive training in both individual offensive and defensive positional technique. There will also be group competition to teach full team offensive and defensive concepts and philosophies. Lastly, campers will be taught proper fundamentals and techniques to safely and effectively tackle.
In the speed training portion of the camp, proper speed mechanics will be the focal point. Specifically, we will teach the basics of stride length, frequency and power, and how to maximize each phase in order to improve your overall speed. Lateral and linear speed will be broken down so when you leave, you will be prepared to tackle any camp or showcase with confidence.
