Comprehensive Football Skills Instruction

New York Giants Youth Football Camps
Non-Contact Football Instruction and Fun for Kids ages 6-14

NEW TO OUR CAMPS?

With our station based training format, campers are divided by age and experience level so each receives the right level of instruction and support. We teach technique, skills and appreciation for all football playing positions.

We develop athletic skills, including individual passing, running, non-contact blocking and tackling. And we take pride in creative, effective, age-appropriate curriculum.

TEACHING

Kids will learn to run, throw, catch, defend, form block, form tackle and explode out of their stance with proper technique and improved speed. We run active camps so kids get multiple chances. With patience and encouragement, kids gain confidence and that’s what it’s all about.
