TROJANS IN TRAINING CAMP (Open to Any And All Entering Grades 3 - 5 As of Fall 2019)
This camp will provide a solid foundation of football knowledge and skills. Each camper will learn the basic fundamentals of each position on the field. Campers will work hands-on with USC coaching staff members and current Trojan football players. Over the course of the morning campers will improve their skills using the same drills and techniques the Trojans use. Campers will work in groups with other participants of the same age. “Trojan Ball” will be introduced and campers will be placed on teams for a competitive “Trojan Ball” tournament. Topics such as strength and conditioning, sports nutrition and sportsmanship will also be addressed.
Camp activities will begin with registration at 8:00am and conclude around 12:00pm. The camp is open for those entering grades 3-5. All camp participants will receive one t-shirt and commemorative team photo.
