A football's distinctive construction allows it to be thrown in a tight spiral, kicked through the uprights, or filled with helium so that it can return to its mother, the blimp overhead. Take possession with this Groupon.
- $99 for a one-day football specialty clinic with an autograph football ($199.97 value)
Held before the Larry English and Nick Hardwick Football Camp, specialty clinics are intended to give kids aged 7–18 the opportunity to receive intensive position-specific training from elite coaches. Participants are split into instructional squads by age and skill level. The specialty clinic in San Diego will take place on July 17, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and lunch will be served.
Players need a helmet, one light and one dark football jersey, shoulder pads, a mouth piece, and football shoes. Equipment can be rented for an additional fee.
Sports International Football Camps
Most camp counselors can teach children how to tie-dye a T-shirt or braid a friendship bracelet. Very few, however, have experienced the exhilaration of vaulting into the end zone for a goal-line touchdown or intercepting a game-winning pass in front of thousands of rabid football fans. Across the country, Sports International Football Camps grant participants the opportunity to learn firsthand from professional athletes, whose gridiron battle scars have been forged by bell-ringing collisions with fearless opponents and reckless mascots on motorcycles.
Since 1983, the organization has partnered with veteran high-school coaches and pros, such as three-time Pro Bowl running back Priest Holmes, All-Pro linebacker Brian Cushing, and Super Bowl champion–cornerback Terrell Thomas. In those years, the camp has schooled some 96,000 alumni, including current NFL quarterback Byron Leftwich. Coaches break campers into groups by age, position, and ability and run practices that are competitive yet fun and supportive. For in-depth focus on the specific techniques of skill-position players, the camp also offers special academies for passing and receiving as well as kicking, punting, long snapping, and cooler lifting for Gatorade victory showers.
