Session 2: June 15 - 20 (Ages 8-18)
Parents and Young Football Players:
Thanks for considering the AFA Football Camp. The Air Force Academy coaching staff is looking forward to the opportunity to once again work with young football players to make friends, build character, establish the finer points of the game and have fun.
There will be two practice sessions each day - one for offense, and one for defense. There will also be film and weight room sessions for older campers. Each camper will receive a daily schedule when they check-in on Sunday, June 15 (2:00-5:00pm). Camp days generally run from 8:30am-4:30pm, with Friday, June 20 being a half-day 8:30am-12:00pm.
For the younger camper 8-11 years old you can expect our camp to develop teamwork, flexibility, discipline and a sense of accomplishment. The older campers will have an emphasis on character development and leadership while learning the game of football. We will instruct technique, strategy and skills. Young athletes are starting to specialize at an earlier age and limited school seasons normally do not have the time and opportunity to learn and perfect techniques to a high level of proficiency.
As always, our emphasis will be on individual fundamentals of the game, along with some group and team activities throughout the week. The entire Falcon coaching staff will be actively coaching all age groups, and each player will be coached on an offensive and defensive position. This is a non-contact camp. No pads or helmets will be worn!
Your youth will be attending the Air Force Academy which is a Division I school. Our coaches are outstanding in their leadership skills, knowledgeable in their position fields, eager to help those who want to improve because of the love of the game, family orientated to make sure each young adult is learning from the grass roots to develop physically and mentally while having a good time. The Academy's weight room is one of the top in the nation and our playing fields are the best you will find anywhere.
Equipment needed: Shorts and T-shirts will be worn for practice sessions. Football cleats for grass and indoor turf shoes will be needed each day. (Tennis shoes or sneakers are fine for the artificial surface.) Bring plenty of sunscreen. There will be competitions (games) on the morning of Friday, June 20, followed by awards. Campers will be free to go after the completion of the awards session and parents and friends are welcome to come and watch.
