Camp Descriptions: Each camp consists of 1-5 action-packed, workout sessions lasting at least 75 minutes each. During these sessions players will learn the importance of the position, footwork and proper mechanics to excel during the regular season. The complexity and intensity of workouts build with each session.
Academy Description: Each Academy offers longer term development (2-3 months) for each player in a position of focus. Academy sessions are offered on dates and times that are convenient for the player. Sessions are typically 90 minutes or longer and are offered multiple times each month. Footwork, fundamentals and techniques are taught in small group sessions for dedicated athletes. In addition to field performance, strength, speed, agility and other position specific skills are developed over time.
The drills and mechanics taught during all West Side Football Academy events come from successful college football programs across the country. Each year research is conducted to provide updated information, skills and techniques.
