Jan. 6, 2014
Registration for the 2014 AFA Sports Camps begins on Wednesday, Jan. 8. Registration is available at goairforcefalcons.com, the official website of Air Force athletics. Early Bird registration runs through Jan. 31 with boarders receiving $50 off and commuters $25 off registration costs. There is a drop down tab on the site to find information on available sports camps, specialty and elite camps and more. Space is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis. This summer marks the 34th year of AFA Sports Camps.
There are 20 camps as well as several specialty camps offered this summer. The sessions for the camps are June 8-13, featuring 13 camps, June 15-20 with 17 camps and the commuter-only week from June 23-25 with seven sports. This year there will be a fourth session from June 30-July 4 featuring figure skating (youth and adult) which is new to the camp schedule this year. Adult tennis (session 3) and a tennis coach's clinic (session 2) are also new.
All of the camps are led by Air Force head coaches with assistance from their coaching staffs as well as top local and national coaches. Boarding camps during the first two sessions offer the opportunity to stay in the Academy dorms and eat in Mitchell Hall like Air Force Academy cadets do. Additionally, campers will have the chance to interact with cadet counselors and learn what it is like to be a cadet-athlete at the Academy.
Also new to the camp program this year is TrueSport, a program powered by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), designed to positively impact and preserve the future of sport in America. The 2014 AFA Sports Camps will be officially recognized as a TrueSport camp by USADA which means that each camper will be exposed to the curriculum and will gain important lessons on what it means to be a TrueSport athlete.

In accordance with NCAA guidelines, all AFA Sports Camps are open to any and all entrants, limited only by specified number, age grade level and/or gender of its participants.
