Picking the right Football Camp - A Coach's Perspective

Picking the perfect football camp seems easy enough on the surface. After all, how many options could there be? A handful? A dozen? Alright, maybe a handful of dozens? When you consider that almost every college with a football program runs their own football camp, many youth football organizations run camps...when you add churches, private companies, and more to the pool and you're quickly looking at hundreds and maybe even thousands of options!

Faced with so many choices, picking just one can be overwhelming. Most difficult choices can be sifted through by letting the criteria that matter most to you guide your decision-making process. Not surprisingly, the same process can be applied to picking the best football camp for you!

In summation - football camp quality tends to follow the adage 'you get what you pay for' pretty closely - safe full-contact camps with plenty of successful experience training elite athletes are few and far between and obviously are not the cheapest options out there but tend to have the biggest positive impact. Camp-seekers on a budget probably have the most options to pick from but should be prepared to put in a lot of supplemental effort into making up the ground lost from not going with the best-of-the-best.
