Youth football camps are building blocks

For Wood Riverís grid program

Fourth-year Wood River High School football coach Kevin Stilling is excited about youth football camps coming up at the end of the 2011-12 school year—and the High School Team Camp from June 27-30 at New Plymouth High School in southwestern Idaho.

Stilling believes that learning football fundamentals and doing strength training become year-round commitments as players get older. It starts in the lower grades.

Optimist Camp for kids entering grades 1-8 next fall (current K-7 graders) is Monday through Thursday, June 4-7, from 3-4:30 p.m. at the Hailey high school. No previous football experience is needed. Cost is $40. Each camper receives a t-shirt and excellent coaching.

Stilling said, "The Optimist Camp is run by the high school and Optimist staffs with the assistance of Wood River varsity players. The purpose is to teach football skills in a fun and energetic atmosphere."

The High School Mini-Camp is Monday and Tuesday, June 25-26, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. each evening at the high school, followed by the High School Team Camp at New Plymouth High from June 27-30.
