Camp Details

Contact Football Camps feature full contact drills and scrimmages with a staff of major college coaches and players. At camp, "contact" is introduced in a slow, gradual progression before any actual "contact" is initiated. Campers are divided according to age, weight and ability.

The instruction 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).

Usd Campus

Campers train daily on the Manchester Valley Athletic Field, which is a multi-purpose facility that serves as the practice field for the USD Football and Soccer programs, as well as Rugby, Intramurals, and recreational softball.

Campers move from non-contact drills to full contact in a gradual progression, culminating with our final day "live" scrimmage. Each camper practices with and learns from NFL pros and coaches, as well as college coaches from top football schools across the country.

    Son's first overnight camp

    July 21, 2017: This was my son's first overnight camp experience and his first time playing tackle football. He looked forward to the "live" contact drills and scrimmages and he enjoyed hanging out with the guys at the dorms. I observed almost every practice and I was impressed at how attentive and enthusiastic the staff was considering they were out there three times per day in the extreme heat!

    After this camp I can't wait for football season!

    "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."

    The campers and coaches were accommodating of all ages

    "My son was the youngest camper at the Contact Football Camp at Amherst. Initially I was nervous about him participating, but the camp counselors made sure he was in a group with kids around his same size. He was easily immersed into the games/drills by all. The kids were great and he had a wonderful time. We will be sending him again next year."
