Like astronaut-training schools, many football camps require clean uniforms, specialized headgear, and a willingness to send small objects into orbit. Seek a higher level of gridiron learning with today's Groupon to Sports International Football Camps. Choose from the following options:

Sports International Football Camps makes MVPs of 7- to 18-year-olds in an intensive, small-group setting with instruction from present and former professional and college players and coaching staff. The Charles Mann two-day camp gives potential pigskin purveyors a comprehensive crash course in offensive and defensive skills from renowned Washington Redskins defensive end and three-time Super Bowl champion Charles Mann, talented high-school coaches, and a mob of disgruntled footballs. Nascent Heisman candidates perform many of the same small-group drills taught by NFL coaching staffs. Attendees receive a complimentary camp T-shirt and football, which Mann can autograph, but they must provide, rent, or manufacture their own playing gear, including helmet, shoulder pads, mouthpiece, one light and one dark jersey, and football shoes (equipment rental is available for an additional $41).
The Nick Novak kicking-and-punting camp lets human trebuchets hone their powerful launching limbs to lay siege to fields ripe with enemy goalposts. Former Washington Redskins kicker Nick Novak and former Maryland Terrapins kicker Dan Ennis guide players through onside, directional, and synchronized can-can kicks while demonstrating proper footwork and efficiency. Jeremy Boone––a former Penn State punter––walks mule-legged athletes through effective timing, directional punting, and a wind-changing dance invented by the game's cave-dwelling creators. Players are required to supply their own equipment––including football shoes, a leather football, kicking tee, holder, and block––and may spend the entire day working as either a kicker or punter, dividing their time evenly, or zealously guarding the autograph football, which Novak can sign.
The specialty football clinic is a focused clinic for players looking to expand their offensive or defensive skill set or repertoire of touchdown-celebration dances. Equipment rental for this option is included, and attendees also receive an autograph football.
