The Tradition Continues at Amherst College Contact Football Camp, June 24-28!
Directing the camp is Head Football Coach EJ Mills. Coach Mills and his staff exemplify the quality of coaches you will find at any of our Contact Football locations this summer as campers work on conditioning, fundamentals and technique at individual positions.
About the Amherst College Contact Football Camp
This summer’s football camp at Amherst College takes place June 24-28th and includes a first day, morning clinic from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. for Quarterbacks, Wide Receivers and Defensive Backs. Entering his 19th season on the Amherst sidelines and 15th as head coach, E.J. Mills has been a part of 100 victories for the Purple and White. The Lord Jeffs have posted a 7-1 record three times and shared a NESCAC title twice under Mills, with the 2001 season marking the team’s first Little Three outright title in 14 years.
As with all Contact Football Camps across the country, campers have the opportunity to train each day, work hard, improve, make new friends, and have fun. Each athlete is encouraged to develop new skills and achieve a new level of play and self-confidence. "Contact" is introduced in a slow, gradual progression with campers being divided according to age, weight and ability. Instruction (3 times a day) takes place on the beautiful fields of Amherst College and stresses both individual positions and team play. Camper’s housing and meals take place on campus.
Mike de Surville, Vice President of US Sports Camps and operators of the Contact Football Camps stated, “We are thrilled to announce our 2012 dates at Amherst College lead by Coach Mills. We look forward to the start of this camp and are confident that this location will be the premier contact camp in the state of Massachusetts."
