The purpose of the First Steps Football Academy is to create an environment where children (ages 7-13) can run, jump, throw, catch and learn the basic skills of football. This camp will give them an opportunity to learn and play every position while introducing them to the game of football. This week long camp will help introduce the fundamentals, techniques, skills, motivation and sportsmanship necessary for success in the sport of football, while expanding the overall knowledge and strategy of the offensive and defensive positions. This is a non-contact camp that is based on learning drills and techniques. Our objective is to improve the young man’s understanding of the game of football and allow him to leave the camp a better player than when he arrived. We will stress individual technique and sound football fundamentals so that each camper can be prepared to go out for football programs in the Gwinnett County Park system or with their school. The camp’s daily format features individual drills, team drills, and afternoon passing drills and film study. Our staff is made up of Former NFL athletes, College and high school coaches and players and will feature NFL guest during the week.
