Ed McCaffrey Open Football Camp VS Elite — Which is Best for Your Kid?

Are you considering sending one or more of your kids to youth football camp in Colorado this summer? If you've been looking around at our site, you'll see that we offer several different camps, including an "open" football camp, and "elite" camp and a defense camp. (And by the way, stay tuned as we will be adding to that lineup as we get closer to "gametime".)

Both the open and the elite Colorado football camps are open to  boys and girls.  These are non-contact camps, where the focus on learning and mastering the skills of football.  And we don't just stress the physical skills, we try to impart the mental skills as well via talks by professional athletes. We want our kids to leave inspired, not just about the sport but about life itself.

Is that overly ambitious for a four day football camp? Honestly, we don't think so. One of the strengths of Sports Eddy camps is that your kids are being coached by the sports heroes they most admire. Anything these pros tell them has such an impact on young impressionable minds. Four "short" days can have a profound impact on a kids life and their perception of things like the importance of fair play, and the value of education.

So along with learning football skills, your kids are absorbing values that will help them be successful in life.

But which camp is best for your kid?

The Ed McCaffrey Open Football Camp is for ages 8 - 15, and it teaches the general, fundamental skills of the game. This camp is suitable for players of all skill levels. It is even appropriate for kids who have never played football before. And did you know that Ed has been coaching kids football camps here in Colorado since the year 2000? Parents, relax, your kids are in great hands with Ed and his experienced team of professional NFL coaches. We make it fun first!

Along with football drills, this camp also consists of speed training and strength training, the 7 on 7 competition and an autograph session. Parents are always welcome to watch from the stands. Yes, we cram a lot into four days, and our kids have a blast. Many return several years in a row, with greater excitement each year.

The Eddy Mac "Elite" Colorado football camp is for kids 10 -- 15.

This camp is what we call "position - specific" meaning the coaching kids receive is tailored to the position that they currently play, or would like to play. We recommend this camp for kids who have a few years of football experience under their belts, or should we say, under their cleats? As with all our camps, there are exciting guest athletes who come and speak to the kids.
