IAM GIFTED SUMMER LIFE SKILLS CAMP
This fun and free camp is supported through an NFL Foundation grant, and corporate sponsors and is designed to introduce boys and girls to the game of football by teaching basic skills in an exciting and energetic environment. FUNdamentals incorporates a series of drills to teach passing, catching, and running skills in a non-contact setting. All skills and drills selected are based on USA Football’s Player Progression Development Model, ensuring children are learning in an age-appropriate manner based on their cognitive and physical maturity. USA Football is the sport’s national governing body and is a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee.
Together with our FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS-Combine and Camp, we have created a program that will increase each player’s level of understanding while improving quickness and strength through a 1 on 1 passing and blocking format. By the end of the camp, participants will have developed a better understanding of the fundamentals of blocking, catching, running, and passing. Alexander will also provide combine testing for all 7th thru 12th graders. Here we will test you in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, broad jump, and 3 cone drills. But that's just on the football side of it.
Through the IAM GIFTED Summer Life Skills program, we will work to help each participant's mental awareness, improve their overall academics will giving them access to present and former NFL players to discuss the NFL Life and Adversity. This 3-day camp will provide them with true-life experiences from the players who are living it each day.
Date, Time, and Location TBD
