Next Level Padded Football Summer Camps

(Camps available for incoming grades 2nd-9th for the 2020-2021 school year)


Next Level Padded Football Skills Camps are week-long (Monday-Friday) full-padded contact instruction camps that run from 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm.  Your child will be coached by members of the Serra Varsity football staff and high performing Student-Athletes who have a high football IQ.  This 5-day camp teaches athletes basic fundamentals of tackle football in a controlled contact environment. Using video, field demonstration, and drill work, participants will learn to execute proper tackling, blocking, and contact techniques.

Participants will be grouped by age, size, and ability to ensure maximum safety and equal competition. Practice will consist of safe hitting instruction with emphasis placed on head position, back angle, arm placement, and hip drive. Your child's safety is our top priority, and our experienced coaching staff will take the necessary steps to guide your child throughout the camp. 

The Next Level Padded Football Camp is a great opportunity for anyone to improve their game. For our first time players, the instruction and drills in our camps are the best and safest way to introduce tackle football. With close to half of our participants new to tackle football, parents can feel secure that their child will learn proper fundamentals with children their same age, size, and skill levels. For our participants who currently play tackle football, our camps can help to further develop the skills necessary to take their game to the next level.

Also, you can add an All-Sports Conditioning Camp to make it an ALL DAY experience from 10:30 am - 4:00 pm! You can select the All-Sports Conditioning Camp for your corresponding week at the bottom of the page!
