Football Camps Offer Instruction
Michigan football is looking for a few good campers, and prospective gridiron standouts aren't too late to save a spot. The Rich Rodriguez Michigan High School Football Camp runs June 14-17, while the Michigan Youth Football Camp follows from June 21-23.
The high school camp costs $395 for resident campers and $180 for commuter campers. The camp featured technique instruction for all position groups, taught on Michigan's outdoor practice fields, as well as indoor and outdoor FieldTurf venues. The newly revamped Michigan weight room will also be employed.
U-M strength and conditioning coach Mike Barwis and his staff will instruct every camper, not only on weight training but also on flexibility, form running and sprint technique.
Meanwhile, Michigan's assistant football coaches each handle their groups of specialty, instructing on fundamentals. The camp will feature 7-on-7 play and other offense-defense drills.
Campers receive official 2009 Rich Rodriguez Michigan Football Camp Apparel.
The Youth Football Camp is designed for sixth, seventh and eighth graders. The cost is $300 for resident campers and $135 for commuters. Anyone interested can go to the following website for complete information: www.michiganfootballcamp.com
