Randy Jackson, Grant Caserta, and Steve Steele share their best ideas for camp activities that reveal the unique personalities of players and coaches by creating opportunities to perform and compete outside the realm of football.
Camp is that time of the year when players and coaches come together, united by their shared passion for the game and goals for their season. There is a palpable sense of anticipation and excitement. But what sets camp apart for some teams is the focus on activities that transcend the typical drills and plays we study and prepare all year long.
Beyond the X’s and O’s, these activities set the foundation that goes to the heart of team-building, trust-building, and personal growth.
