University Football Camps in Louisiana
University football camps have several advantages for prospective college students. This makes them a good choice for athletes who know they want to play college ball, whether they know where they want to play or not.
If you do know which colleges you’d like to attend, then find out if they are hosting a camp this summer. This will give you the chance to meet the coaching staff and work with the current players who are your potential team mates. Finding out in advance whether you like the coaching style of the staff at the school, and whether you can integrate into the team, will save you a lot of heartache later.
Another advantage to a university camp is the ability to use college-level equipment. A lot of university camp attendees get to work out in the gym, use the training aides (usually much better than those available to most high schools), and play on the college field. This will give you an idea of the resources available at the school and if they have the kind of program you’d want to be a part of. Of course, a state-of-the-art gym is no substitute for quality coaching, but it can be a helpful additional bit of information when choosing between comparable schools.
Finally, a university camp will give you the chance to experience college life outside of football. You won’t have a lot of free time to wander, but most camps have some downtime. You may get to use the school pool, tour the campus, see the library, or other important features the school has to offer. You’ll also get to stay in the dorms at an overnight camp, so you’ll get an idea of what dorm life is like. Eating in the dining halls is another part of living on campus that you’ll get to try.
