Q: What if my child is an average athlete or is just beginning football?
A: The camp is not designed for kids to get down on themselves if he or she is not keeping up with the other kids. It is based on positive reinforcement for each participant’s individual effort. The coaches pay close attention to each child and make sure they improve at their own level of ability. If your child is just beginning, the camp is ideal for them. They will learn exactly what a practice is like and what is expected of them on the football field.
Q: Is the camp advanced enough for my child?
A: We feel it is very important to challenge each child to raise their skill level and focus to a higher level. We make a special effort to ensure every participant gains valuable experience and knowledge from the coaching staff. We make sure the kids are matched up with others of the same talent level.
Q: Will my 8-year-old have to go against the older kids?
A: We organize the practice schedule so kids work with other kids their same age, size, talent and ability.
Q: What is the coach-to-participant ratio?
A: The optimum teaching takes place when you have one coach for every 10-12 kids. We always try to maintain those standards at the camp. Our initial staff is set up for 150 kids, but we have coaches lined up as the registration increases. It really helps us with organization if the parents submit registration forms early.
Q: What is the maximum number of kids you allow?
A: Each camp we run is different. Depending on the location and availability of coaches, we limit the amount of participants to as few as 150 and as many as 300. EARLY Registration is encouraged!
Q: Can the parents stay and watch?
A: You are more than welcome to watch practices.
Q: Do the kids get an autograph?
A: The camp is meant to be a working camp. Every child will receive a minimum of one autographed photo. Any additional autograph arrangements will be announced at the camp.
Q: Is there someone available if my child is injured?
A: Training staff will be on hand for all minor injuries and preventative care. Medical clinics and a hospital are near the practice facilities, and a mobile phone is on-site for emergency situations.
Q: Who actually runs the camp?
A: The Camp Director is Kelly Faiman (1-855-RIMINGTON or 1-855-746-4648)
Q: Who are the coaches?
A: Our goal when we line up a coaching staff is to present a wide range of expertise that allows a child to relate to different levels of success. The pro athlete(s) really make it fun for the kids, but the celebrity players involved in the camp are only a small part of why our camps are so successful. Our staff features top local high school coaches who have a proven track record of wonderful teaching skills. Also, we have top college players involved in addition to local high school players who really relate to the kids.
Q: Are the celebrity athlete(s) really there and help coach?
A: Yes! The athletes are not only scheduled to be there, but they take an active role in the practice. There is always a chance of an emergency situation that does not allow for the celebrity athletes to make all the days of practice. All celebrity athletes sign an agreement that clearly states their involvement and commitment to the camp. We are very lucky in that most of the celebrities involved in the camps are there because they care and they want to be there. They are involved with all phases of the practice schedule and do a terrific job working with the kids. It is either their hometown, college town or NFL city, so they have a great sense of contributing to the community. If an emergency arises that forces them to miss a practice, the athletes help find replacement athletes who the kids would enjoy working with.
Q: Can you explain what you do during the camp?
A: Our camps are non-contact. We stress fundamentals, form and technique, with a focus on quality instruction for each and every kid in a fun atmosphere. We not only hope to teach them skills to make them better athletes, we hope to stimulate their general interest in sports. This will include an emphasis on good work habits, self-discipline, motivation and self-confidence. Our practices are intense, upbeat, and crisp in tempo. We want the kids to be aware that this is not playtime, but a place to further develop their athletic skills. It is our sincere hope that what we present to the kids is taken to heart and applied to their game and their everyday life.
