Why Should Players Attend Camp Casey?
Camp Casey is a chance for players and coaches to bond as a team and to get to know each other on a deeper level. Activities during Camp Casey include work on various football skills (such as learning the schemes on offense and defense), conditioning, team building (fort building, belly flop contests, tug of war, watermelon eating competitions), and most importantly the opportunity to bond with other team members. There will also be swimming on Monday and Tuesday afternoons (don’t forget the swimsuit) evening campfires, and more!
NOTE: All football activities are deemed non-contact and thus equipment such as helmets and shoulder pads will not be needed.
The cost to attend is $275. The Gridiron Club has some funds available for scholarships.
