Over the past five years the Xavier coaching staff has hosted a youth camp at the Xavier High School campus in Middletown, Connecticut. Xavier's youth camp prepares young football players for high school level competition by: teaching essential individual techniques, instilling a winning attitude, and educating athletes about the vital elements of a winning program.
Campers who attend Xavier's football camp will have contact with some of the most practiced and experienced coaches Connecticut has to offer. Additionally, all campers will be provided with position specific instruction for both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. There will be two practices each day; the first practice will emphasize offensives skills and techniques, and the second practice will emphasize defensive skills and techniques. Between the two main sessions, classroom instruction will supplement the campers' onfield practice and instruction.
Once campers conclude their experience at Xavier, they will be prepared to approach the game of football with a winning attitude and with the skills necessary to be champions. Xavier's football tradition is one of success and its camp is premised on the goal of promoting success for each of its enrolled athletes.
Who can attend: Xavier's Football Camp is open to young men entering grades 7-9 in the fall.
