Harker’s Junior Eagle coed football summer camp is a great way for students from any school in grades 4-8 to improve as players and as team members. Campers will be placed in groups based on age and skill level, and the camp will comprise two sessions per day. The first session will help students improve their skills by participating in speed and agility drills as well as offensive and defensive drills. Students will have the choice of focusing on one team position or learning a variety of them. In the second session, teams of students will play a minimum of five games each day, and a championship team will be declared by the end of the week. The second session is available separately, but students must be enrolled in the first session to be eligible for the second session.
Ron Forbes, Harker’s sports performance coordinator, will serve as head coach during the program. In a career spanning 15 years, which has included stints at Stanford University and the University of Florida, Forbes has coached Olympians, professional athletes and national champions in a wide variety of sports.
Students in grades 5-6 will participate in non-contact sessions. Grades 7-8 will participate in full-contact drills with appropriate gear. The first camp will be held July 23-25, and the second camp will take place July 26-27. Each day, the first session runs from 1-4 p.m., and the second session from 4:30-7:30 p.m. For more information and to register for this program, please visit http://summer.harker.org/page.cfm?p=2381.
