17th Annual Hampton Roads All-Star Football Camp, July 12-13, 2013, CNU, Newport News, VA
Hampton Roads All-Star Football Camp is a two day camp for youth ages 8-14 and selected high school players. The camp will feature the teachings of basic offensive and defensive skills taught by football professionals and coaches. Other elements will include a question and answer session with NFL players, discussions about nutrition and conditioning, and lectures on the importance of academic excellence. Our camp helps improve your love for football under the watchful eye of outstanding coaches and athletes.
The local communities have made a commitment to ensure that this event is a success, but we cannot do it alone. For example, the NFL Players Association has adopted the camp as one of its youth football initiatives.
In bringing home local NFL players to serve as guest camp counselors, we have managed to give new life to the old idea of hosting a football camp. We view sports as a metaphor for life! The same attributes that propel one to succeed on the gridiron (drive, preparation, goal-setting and teamwork) will propel one to succeed in any endeavor. The NFL players and the camp staff will reinforce this point to camp participants continuously throughout the weekend.
Through the Hampton Roads Youth Foundation, we organize various events in conjunction with the Hampton Roads All-Star Football Camp, such as golf tournaments, galas and celebrity bowling events, to help raise money for other projects. We have educational reading partnerships with various schools in the community and provide annual college scholarships for the youth who participate in the camp. With your support we can turn our youth’s hopes into realities.
We are grateful for your consideration, and hope you will join us as a partner in this exciting initiative to restore responsibility, discipline, mentorship and education into the lives of young people in the Hampton Roads area.
The football camp program offers limited-contact technique training and has been developed to enhance the skills of young athletes everywhere. Our coaches take every step possible to provide a setting where the sport is enjoyed and skills are improved. All instruction takes place on well-groomed fields, while each athlete is exposed to experienced coaching from college and high school level coaches and their staff. They want every athlete to improve!
All campers will have the opportunity to train each day, work hard, improve their skills, make new friends, and have fun. Each athlete is encouraged to develop new skills and achieve a new level of play and self-confidence. Campers cover all aspects of offense, defense and special teams to help develop their skills and enhance their interest in the game of football.
