College Football Camps Offer Sessions for All Ages and Skill Levels
Colleges host different types of football camps for players of different ages and skill levels. You’ll find, at most college camps, sessions for young players (sixth to eighth grade), high school players, and even some camps for very young players (second to sixth grade).
These sessions are held in the same place, at the same time, but the different groups do not play together. So, if you’ve noticed that the camp you want to attend will also have eight year olds at it, don’t worry. They won’t be part of your experience.
These football camps will also offer a variety of session lengths. Some will be single day events, either because they are for young players or they focus on a particular skill, like kicking. You’ll also find two day camps for younger players and high school level athletes.
These can be general skills camps or focused camps at the high school level. There will also be weeklong, overnight camps. These are for serious high school athletes. These football camps can also be general skills camps or focused position players camps, like QB or Back.
Picking College Football Camps
So, which camp should you choose? Well, let’s start with the obvious. Pick a camp that fits your schedule. If your summer job doesn’t allow for you to be gone for week at a time, then go for a one or two day camp. You’ll still get something out of the experience, and it will be cheaper. If scheduling isn’t going to be a problem, how about cost?
Again, the shorter camps will be less expensive. If money and time are no objects, then consider attending more than one camp this summer, one for general skills and one for position play. This will give you a chance to spend the most time possible increasing your skills.
