Setting up Camp
« on: January 24, 2014, 01:16:03 PM »
We will be setting up a four day 2 hour camp this year in our organization.  The camp will be used mainly for the kids that have signed up with our program.  Do to the league rules it is technically open to anyone who wants to register and pay, but that does not matter.  We will be using this camp to get returning players re-acclimated to football and give newbies a little head start.  The kids will range from 8 to 13 years old.  We are also unable to have the kids in any type of equipment, just cleats.   Its a little tricky because we cant break the kids down into age groups either, because we cannot do any organized team activities.  so it will be a mixed bag of ages.  I was hoping for some ideas to cover the 8 hours of total camp. Any ideas out there????

Coach we opened our camp yesterday for spring ball.We opened it frre to the public.We had 20-30 kids show up from ages 6-13.We lined them up behind 4 cones and ran them thru our warmups like we do during the season.We gave all the kids a number 1-4 and sent them to a station.Each station was a different drill with one of our coaches.If you can use a coach if not a dad.Station 1:stance,blocking.Station 2:handoffs,pitches.Station 3:Throwing,catching.Station 4:We did agility drills.We did that for 5-10 mins and then rotated.After each kid went thru a station we lined them up and showed them the different positions and holes(center,guard,tackle,tightened.1hole,2hole etc.)Then we did swithced over for defense.Each station had its own drill.We had stations for stance,agility,and two for tackling the dummies.We had water at station 1,3 in case they got thirsty.Then to end the night we lined them up in their groups and had them race.I like to seem them compete.The parents and kids loved it.this is how we did it and it worked great.You can always change the stations to whatever you want.But its just an idea..
