FOOTBALL SKILLS CAMP
The Oahe YMCA, working with the Governor staff and players, are offering Football Skills Camp. Coaches from both the Governor’s staff and current players will run this camp which will stress the fundamentals of football and improving the players’ fitness level. Given the special circumstances this year, this will be a non-contact camp. We will emphasize distancing and when working in groups, players will remain with the same group for the entire camp to minimize mixing as much as possible. Time will be spent each session sanitizing equipment and balls.
Skills and concepts covered during the camp: passing, catching, ball handling, tackling (donuts & dummies), blocking, special teams, position instruction and more.
