FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Coach McElwain Football Camps, which are hosted in Fort Collins and around the state of Colorado, are set to begin in just over a week with the Youth Camp, for grades 3-8. Registration is still open for all the camps, but spots are filling fast.
Taught by Colorado State head football coach Jim McElwain and members of his outstanding coaching staff, these camps provide all-around instruction to improve skills, introduce safe and effective techniques and include all campers in all drills.
Youth Camp, June 5-6
The excitement begins with a Youth Camp held on the Colorado State campus in Fort Collins for children in grades 3-8. The cost in $185 for commuters and $220 for those that will stay on campus overnight. The non-padded, individual camp will focus on basic individual skills and feature instruction from the CSU football staff.
Team Camp, June 8-10
Beginning on June 8, the Rams will host their annual Team Camp on the CSU campus. This camp will offer a "Renegade Team" for those who want to participate, but whose team isn't attending. Registration is $235 per individual and includes up to eight practice sessions, six meals, lodging and instruction from CSU coaches.
Satellite Camps, June 11-14
These camps are designed for players of all positions to improve their skills and receive an introduction to CSU and the football staff. It is yet another example of the way Coach McElwain has worked hard to expand upon CSU President Tony Frank's initiative to increase exposure to Colorado State University statewide, and to broaden the recruitment of students and student-athletes to Colorado State.
The Satellite Camps, for kids in grades 3-12, will be held June 11 (Yuma), June 12 (Denver and Pueblo), June 13 (Durango) and June 14 (Grand Junction). These two-hour non-padded camps cost $30 per participant and all campers will receive a camp t-shirt. Each city will host an evening event for CSU alumni, fans and friends. More information on the evening events can be found here.
All-Position Skills Camp, July 24-25
High school football players can take part in the 2014 All-Position Skills Camp at Colorado State July 24-25. This camp is designed for players to wear a helmet and shoulder pads and receive instruction from the CSU coaching staff in individual, group and team situations. The cost of the camp is $220.
Specialist Camp, July 24
Additionally, the CSU coaching staff will host a Specialist Camp on July 24. The cost is $75 per player. Each specialist will learn from special teams coordinator Jeff Hammerschmidt, who brings 20 years of collegiate special teams experience to the camp. Attendees will receive instruction from several CSU alums, including kickers Jason Smith and Ben DeLine, punter Jimmie Kaylor and long snapper Tanner Hedstrom, among many others.
Registration for all camps remains open, but spaces fill quickly, so don't wait. Register online today. Registered campers must complete the medical waiver found online. For questions, call 970-491-6131.
