Linfield's Individual Camp was a hit!

Linfield's 1st individual skills camp will become one of the best on the west coast.
Last Tuesday, the Linfield College football staff concluded their 1st ever individual skill camp in the 'Catdome.  For nearly 30 years the summers in the 'Catdome were exclusively for the highly regarded and well attended team football camp (this year's two sessions saw 1,600 campers come through Linfield over a 9 day period).  This past spring the staff decided to add a more personal touch to the football opportunities available for high school players in the Northwest by offering up a smaller and more personal learning experience.

The result was nearly 50 players receiving a two day clinic in championship football as the Linfield staff put these players though technical position training that made the $150 price tag a bargain.  The players were put though two 3 1/2 hour non-padded workouts on Monday and Tuesday that the Linfield staff uses daily during the college season.  Each position group was filmed constantly by a student worker and that video was later broken down in film sessions ran by the staff. 

This camp was a hit with both the players and the staff and you're going to see this individual skills clinic continue to grow and become a major destination on the summer circuit.  The training the players received was just too good not for players in the Northwest to pass up.
