Elizabeth Park and Recreation is joining forces with Everett Dowd to present Elbert County's first 4 week football camp!
About your coach: Everett has been coaching football in Elbert County since 2013. He has coached throughout Elizabeth Park & Rec for pee wee flag, up to tackle, and is now the head coach for KYA Football in Kiowa. He has a strong passion for teaching youth about proper technique and safety while making learning fun!
Elbert county football camp aims to teach kids the skills needed to go forward into contact football. Ages 8-12 is our target audience for this camp as it goes over basic skills to aid in their development to play contact football in an effective manner minimalizing chances for injury. The camp consists of 4 weeks. All weeks will have time allotted for physical education and football stance education. It all starts with good physical fitness and solid stance.
The camp runs Monday through Thursday. (See Registration for Dates) Week 1 is Offensive skills. Week 2 is Defensive Skills. Week 3 is Blocking Camp and finally Week 4 is Tackling Camp. While none of the skills we do will require full pads to participate in, there will be what is considered light grappling. Light grappling is akin to martial arts classes like Judo or Jiu-Jitsu where we will be doing some technique teaching using each other. All kids will be paired up according to age, skill and size for learning. Over 80% of the skills will be taught using bags and equipment for training purposes.
Each week can be attended separately and by no means is it expected to be a build up camp.
*For those who are on Free/Reduced lunch please contact the office to register your child/ren.

At Elizabeth Park and Recreation we believe in instilling a positive attitude, teaching basic fundamentals, building confidence, and sharing our love of play with youth. We believe play is a vital right for all youth and helps develop physical, emotional, and social growth. Our programs emphasize participation, fun, and sportsmanship over winning and we strongly discourage the hyper competiveness that negatively impacts many youth sport programs. All coaches, players, parents, officials, and program administrators will demonstrate respect for each other as well as the game at all times. Participants, parents, and coaches are expected to support this system.
