Registration Now Open at www.EdMcCaffrey.com For McCaffrey's Long-Running Football Camp at Valor Christian High School.
- Denver, CO (1888PressRelease) December 17, 2010 - Former All-Pro wide receiver and three-time Super Bowl champion Ed McCaffrey today announced the dates for the 10th Annual Ed McCaffrey Football Camp at Valor Christian High School in Highlands Ranch, Colo. (3775 E. Grace Blvd., 80126). The youth football camp, for kids between the ages of 8 and 15, is scheduled for June 27-30, 2011. Participants may register by visiting http://www.EdMcCaffrey.com.
The Ed McCaffrey Football Camp will once again feature two sessions to cater to all skill and experience levels. The Open Camp will run from 8:30-11:30 a.m. each day, and the Elite Camp--which is position-specific and designed for the older, more experienced player-runs from 12:30-3:30 p.m.
The youth football camp includes football skills and speed training from some of the very best NFL, collegiate and high school coaches in the country. Former coaches and celebrity speakers include NFL greats Rod Smith, John Lynch, Mark Schlereth, Karl Mecklenburg, Chad Brown, Steve Beuerlein, Gus Frerotte, Justin Armour and Trevor Pryce among others.
"We are assembling another high-caliber roster of coaches to teach our young campers about the great game of football," McCaffrey says. "The skills we teach have been used by Pro Bowler players, Super Bowl champions and Hall of Famers."
The Ed McCaffrey Football Camp offers far more than mere Xs and Os. Guest speakers are a big part of each day's agenda, covering topics such as The Mental Edge, Making Good Choices and Healthy Living. McCaffrey describes the camp's goals as follows: "While we pride ourselves on the success of our campers, as coaches our aim is to motivate and inspire every camper at every level to make the most of their unique talents and abilities on the field and in life."
Campers will receive football skills training from NFL professionals, and speed and agility training from "trainer to the pros" Loren Landow, who has worked with more than 100 professional athletes, including several All-Pros and Super Bowl Champions. Participants will also enjoy 7-on-7 competition throughout the week and the opportunity to gauge their skills during the "Youth Combine," modeled after the NFL's pre-draft Scouting Combine.
The camp culminates with an autograph session by Ed and his fellow NFL and college players and coaches, who thoroughly enjoy sharing with future generations of youth football players what they know about the great game of football.
