The football staff at St. Pius X would like to invite you to participate in our football camp during the summer of 2013.
We offer two separate camps during the week of July 9th. The Lion Camp is for rising 1st through 5th graders and the Lion Pride Camp is for rising 6th through 8th graders.
Football camp at St. Pius X is designed to give players a head start on the 2013 football season. Our day camps aim to teach the fundamentals of the game. This is an outstanding chance for young men who desire to play football to learn the game from the excellent coaches at St. Pius X.
The Lion Camp (rising 1st-5th graders) will focus on teaching the basic tools that it takes to be a good football player.
The Lion Pride Camp (rising 6th-8th graders) will include instruction in the fundamentals of football and the installing of our base defense and offense for the upcoming middle school season.
We know that by attending camp each player will grow not only as a football player, but as a young man.
If you have any questions about camp, please feel free to contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (404) 636-3023 Ext. 279.
