Many parents ask me about our spring mini camp and whether their son should consider participating, My answer is almost always “Yes”. Here’s why.
There is no pressure on coaches to get prepared for a regular season game. This means they spend less time doing installation and reps and more on fundamentals. Plus the atmosphere is around development versus preparation. This gives young players a great opportunity to learn.
Competitions! We hold daily competitions that may not specifically be football drills but do develop a sense of one one one competition. While football is a team sport, every play is an individual competition. Getting players eager to compete and learning how to “raise” their level of competitiveness is one of our goals. Spring min camp allows us more time to hold competitions.
Spring Mini Camp provides players the mental preparation for moving up to the next level. For those players who are moving up in age groups or may even be playing for the first time the Spring mini Camp allows them to experience it in a great environment. In can mean the difference in a player showing up in the fall with a great attitude and a lot of confidence or arriving nervous and not knowing what to expect.
Spring is an important part of any players preparation for playing football. They should make the time to spend 2 -3 weeks to get a boost to their game.
