NFL / USA Football FUNdamentals


The Jimmy Graves Foundation FUNdamentals Football Camp is a great opportunity to learn fundamental skills and to receive instruction on individual position and team play. The FUNdamentals Football Camp is open to all players ages 6-16 years of age. Don’t miss out on improving your game!

The camp will consist of a morning non-contact session with instruction. FUNdamentals introduce athletes, ages 6-16, to football by teaching basic skills in a fun and energetic environment. Coaches use a series of drills to show passing, catching and running skills in a non-contact setting. All skills and drills selected are based on USA Football’s American Development Model, ensuring children are learning in an age-appropriate manner and creating an ideal atmosphere for fun!

A free Heads Up Parent Football Clinic will be held from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. on September 29th. Each clinic will help provide parents whose children are interested in playing tackle football with the latest information about player safety and other important information. Jimmy Graves Foundation volunteer medical professionals will discuss concussion recognition and a parent’s role, while also covering nutrition, hydration, and prevention of heat-related illness. Jimmy Graves Foundation football coaches will educate parents on proper helmet and shoulder pad fitting, while coaches discuss football basics including rules and player positions. Following classroom instruction, the clinic will move to the field for hands-on instruction.

Champions are made from something they have deep inside them
-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will.
But the will must be stronger than the skill.
