You will return home to your team a better football player! Campers learn from outstanding veteran college and high school coaches selected for their ability to coach and teach the game of football. The staff is complimented with Nick Hardwick & Larry English and current and/or and former members of the San Diego Chargers. Before the start of camp, each of our instructors attend an orientation session ensuring they adhere to the values and high level of coaching that is expected from the Sports International coaches.
We will teach you the same offensive and defensive techniques that are taught by the San Diego Chargers coaching staff! Campers are grouped by age, position, ability and experience to allow coaches to progressively teach basic and advanced techniques to best benefit each group. Campers are taught at an approximately 10:1 ratio. This ratio ensures that campers receive individual and team instruction on both offense and defense at camp. With each practice, you will receive in-depth instruction, lectures, and demonstrations from an experienced, knowledgeable coaching staff.
At camp, players get all the football they could ever want. Campers receive up to 6 hours of instruction each day. Each camp is the right size to allow players to be matched up properly at each age level. This allows not only for a proper match up, but also for the campers to be challenged and provided with a better learning environment.
