Eric also runs the premier youth football camp in our area. For close to 30 years, the EK Football Camp has provided an excellent program for young players. He has assembled a staff deep in playing and coaching experience at every level.
Unlike basketball, baseball, soccer and other sports that have club teams and AAU that run year-round, football has a short season and limited opportunities to improve your game and skills outside the season. EKFOOTBALLCAMP provides that opportunity.
This year’s camp is June 12-15, and runs from 9am-12pm. The camp is open to players from ages 5-14, from every position on both sides of the ball.

My son Jason attended the camp every year that he was in the Ironmen program, and loved every minute of it. As a dad I liked the fact that it was in early June each summer, right after school let out. It gave Jason something to do in the quiet window after school and spring sports ended but before summer vacations kicked in. As an Ironman coach, I loved the fact that it was a chance for players to benefit from football drills and skills in the early summer and it didn’t conflict with our own Ironmen late summer camp or pre-season activities in August. -Jarrod S.
