Camp is divided into three age groups for proper instruction.

We at First and Goal Sports are excited to announce a Partnership with the Nazareth Little Blue Eagles on July 28th 2019.  The camp will be for kids in Grades 2-8 and will run from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM at Lower Nazareth Township Park.

In addition to learning some football skills we will teach some valuable skills to deal with adversity along with taking care of your classmates with an appearance from the Anti-Bully Squad.  The Academy teaches young men and women how to develop strength of character and use the skills they need to win in any game – whether it be in football or in life.

The academy will follow the successful formula First and Goal Sports has been using the last eight years all over the region. Athletes will have an opportunity to learn one position or multiple positions if they choose. The kids will learn basic tackling, blocking and ball handling techniques at the start of the clinic. We will also teach some basic speed and agility drills organized by one of the best young trainers in the area Marc Gaudet of VETS.

There is no live tackling of other players and no equipment is needed. All form tackling will be done on practice dummies. The camp staff will consist of college coaches and current or former college players. We will teach innovative skills with one of the most important areas of focus being our safe and effective tackling system. We have used this system at the college level and it has produced great results not only in reducing concussions but also forcing more fumbles.
